The River Exchange is one of my favorite organizations in Siskiyou County. They do a lot of work to protect the watersheds of the Upper Sacramento River and also the McCloud River, and they actively build and maintain hiking trails (most recently the Tauhindauli River Trail extension).
The River Exchange is holding a fundraiser this weekend. I strongly encourage you to go, have a good time, and give them some support.
Here’s the press release:
The River Exchange’s annual fun-raiser River Celebration is happening this Saturday evening, June 6, at 6:00 p.m. at the Mount Shasta City Park Upper Lodge. This year’s event is geared to “go with the flow” with lower ticket prices, BBQ or vegetarian dinner, lots of affordable silent auction items (including select wines from a former board member’s private cellar), no-host beer/wine bar, and music by Jack Taforo. Proceeds from this event help support the River Exchange’s ongoing watershed restoration, education and community involvement programs.
Tickets for the event are $35.00 each, or two for $65.00, and can be purchased at Village Books in Mt. Shasta or at the River Exchange office in Dunsmuir. For more information or to purchase tickets, please contact The River Exchange at 235.2012 or email@example.com.
