The Good Folks at the Tuolumne River Trust have re-vamped their annual celebration of All Things Tuolumne in light of the Rim Fire.  Yes, there will be the usual cocktails, tasty snackies, and hob-nobbing.  But this year the focus will be on learning more about what we can expect in the aftermath of the fire–what the damage is, and how we can help.  Guest speakers include Firefighters and Forest Service folks.

RimFire_blaze_AORaftingAlthough the bulk of the work restoring the river canyon will fall to Mother Nature, there are things we human beings can do as well.  Roads will need to be re-built, plants can be re-seeded and planted.  Erosion control will help protect the river, wildlife, and access for things like fishing, hiking, and of course rafting.  All these efforts will take lots of time, effort, and boatloads of money.  If you’re in a position to help, get your ticket to the Call of the River Cocktails, Awards, and Rim Fire Rally September 26th at the Waterfront Hotel in Jack London Square.  You can get more information and tickets directly from the Tuolumne River Trust.

Not into cocktails or have plans on the 26th but still want to help?  Consider volunteering.  To learn more about opportunities to give some elbow grease to the effort contact: Rebecca at rebecca@tuolumne.org or call her at (415) 882-7252 ex 301.
