It's time to protect the Mokelumne for good! 
Now's the time to speak up for protecting the Mokelumne River with California Wild and Scenic River designation -- see meetings and other options below.
Dear Carol:
It's time to speak up for the river you love!
You still have to speak up for the Mokelumne River and support the conclusions in the  California Natural Resources AgencyClaire_Electra small's draftMokelumne River Wild and Scenic Study Report.  The report recommends addding 37 miles of the Mokelumne to the state’s protected river system. We need your help to make that happen.

Here's what you can do!

-- Speak up at the California Natural Resources Agency's public hearing in Oakland on Monday, February 26 at 6 pm. EBMUD Board Room, 375 11th St, Oakland.
