What's New at Your RCD
COVID-19 Update
Dear Friends,

We hope this message finds you safe and well during this tumultuous time. In response to guidance from the CDC and Governor, and more recently the requirements of the County's shelter in place order, the RCD has closed our office through April 7th. Our team is working remotely, and continues to advance our mission. While we have cancelled in-person meetings through at least the 7th, we are available for phone calls and other forms of remote meetings, and look forward to connecting with our partners in these ways. We are replying to emails and voicemails, so if you need to get in touch please don't hesitate to reach out.

We hope that you are staying safe and sound,

Your RCD Team
2020 Soil Health Symposium resources
Thank you to the over 100 participants who logged on to view and engage with the third annual Soil Health Symposium on Friday, March 13! The Sonoma and Gold Ridge RCDs and the Sonoma County Winegrowers were appreciative of your patience and flexibility as we moved the live event to webinar format due growing public health concerns. The webinar will be available on our website soon!
Petaluma Watershed Collaborative
Funded by the Bureau of Reclamation’s WaterSMART program, Sonoma RCD is leading efforts in to build the institutional capacity amongst local stakeholder groups to carry our sustainable watershed management and restoration in the Petaluma watershed by creating and sustaining a Petaluma River Watershed Collaborative. While funded under the current grant, Sonoma RCD will organize and hold stakeholder meetings in order to develop a revised version of the Petaluma Watershed Enhancement Plan and an Action Plan to identify and advance watershed restoration projects and priorities.

Local landowners, residents, business owners, or individuals with interest are welcome to attend stakeholder meetings, as well as any additional watershed stakeholder that may have not been included within previous invitations. Meetings are held every other month in Petaluma. Several interested party meetings geared to provide an overview of efforts, current information, and receive comments from interested parties will be held as well. Meeting agendas and notes will be posted on our website to notify of meeting date, time, and location.

For more information, please contact Katie Robbins at 707.569.1448 ext 104 or krobbins@sonomarcd.org .
