In addition to Wednesday’s virtual discussion, the California Natural Resources Agency is hosting two other events this week in Sacramento.
Join us Thursday, April 20 for a kid-friendly Earth Day Open House from 3 to 5 p.m. at our headquarters, 715 P Street in downtown Sacramento. The event features interactive demonstrations and fun activities as well as a screening of short, kid-friendly films from this year’s Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
Then on Friday, April 21 at 4:30 p.m., please join us for a screening of the documentary “California’s Watershed: Healing.” Produced by The Chronicles Group, this film highlights the crucial role of community engagement in the restoration and conservation of the Sierra Nevada’s natural resources. Following the screening, a panel of water experts will discuss the film, as well as the ongoing efforts of local organizations and individuals who are making a significant difference in preserving California’s watershed. This event is free and open to the public, but capacity is limited. Please RSVP here to confirm your attendance.
