Bat Talk and Walk with Yolo Basin Foundation
Aug 16 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Did you know that colonies of migratory bats live under the Yolo Causeway during the summer? Join the Yolo Basin Foundation for a summertime Bat Talk and Walk event and learn all about these amazing and beneficial mammals.

Registration required www.yolobasin.org There are 30 dates from which to choose.

Meet live bats! Following a 45 minute indoor presentation on bat natural history and viewing the live bats, the group will carpool out to the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to watch the “flyout” of the largest colony of Mexican free-tailed bats in California. The bats emerge in long ribbons as they head out to hunt for insects for the night. To get to the viewing site, the group will caravan through wetlands and rice fields to an area not open to the public.

The whole experience takes about 3 hours. This is a family friendly event! There is a small amount of walking. Those in wheelchairs or unable to walk may view the bats by car. Please let us know if you have special needs.

You may reserve up to six spots per family. Adults are $14 each. Children 15 and under are free.

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.

CROP Coalition Meeting
Aug 16 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

From CROP:

Come learn more about what CROP (Capital Region Organizing Project) has to offer YOU! We are assembling our leadership, planning community organizer trainings, cultivating relationships and most importantly, BUILDING POWER. We have the tools. Let’s enhance the skills that are at the heart of success. What is the mechanism behind organizing towards a shared goal?

Join us May 17th, 2017 — whatever your concern or issue is! All are invited.

More about the Capital Region Organizing Project (CROP):

We are an affiliate of Gamaliel Network. The mission of the Gamaliel Network is to empower ordinary people to effectively participate in the political, environmental, social and economic decisions affecting their lives. Gamaliel’s diverse members apply their faith and values to the pursuit of equal opportunity for all, shared abundance, and stronger, more prosperous communities.

Our goal is to build a powerful organization that serves as a vehicle through which people will create democracy, civic engagement, broader leadership, collaboration and power to ensure justice and equity for everyone.

We share a set of values and/or faith that demand that all people be entitled to opportunity and justice. We believe the majority of our residents are being negatively impacted by public policies related to transportation, housing, education, jobs, immigration policy and do not have the power to change these policies and are being denied opportunity.

Date: Saturday, June 9, 2018

Time: 10:00AM to noon (followed by SacTRU at 1:00PM)

Location: Organize Sacramento, 1714 Broadway (Route 51 and Blue Line; the meeting location is accessible)

Please register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/star-action-team-tickets-46685262878. You may attend if you don’t register, and if you register and don’t attend, the advocacy police will not come after you. But it does help to know.

Agenda

Open topics: We often spend much time talking about transit-related issues that are not on the agenda, so for this meeting, let’s flip things. The first part of the agenda belongs to the group. What do you want to talk about? If you’d like to come prepared, you can develop a succinct explanation, or offer a document or presentation, or email something to the group ahead of time. Please have a time estimate, how long you think information or discussion should last. Or, you can propose something on the fly at the meeting. If the group consensus is that this is a worthwhile topic, proceed! First come, first serve.
