Come Along on Big Sur Coast Hikes Hosted by the Friends of the River!
Here's a tempting invitation for a little spring excursion. Take a hike along the beautiful rivers of California's Big Sur Coast. Traipse along the Little Sur, the Carmel, the Arroyo Seco as the weather turns even more gorgeous. If you live in the area, you're very lucky. If you live elsewhere, make a weekend of it! Friends of the River and our allies in the Ventana Wild Rivers Campaign are leading hikes along the rivers we are trying to protect as Wild & Scenic. Learn about the rivers, the land around them, and the work we are doing on the Central Coast. Click here to learn about these day hikes and for links to weekend accommodations in the region. Go hiking!
That is why Friends of the River joined forces with the Ventana Wilderness Alliance and many other local groups, community leaders, and small businesses to form the Ventana Wild Rivers Campaign (VWRC). The VWRC has been working nonstop for two years to raise support for National Wild & Scenic designation for all of these remaining rivers and streams, and it looks like we may be close to our goal. Recently Rep. Sam Farr has shown interest in Wild & Scenic protection, and the VWRC is posed and ready to see it through.
Please help our effort. Send an email in support of these rivers or contact Central Coast Rivers Coordinator Hannah Schoenthal-Muse at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more ways to help us protect
And we'll see you on a hike!
