Guest Speaker Paul Edelman (2:30PM)

Paul Edelman, Deputy Director, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, works on land acquisition, shaping development entitlement, and passive recreation development over a 2,500 square mile area of Southern California. A primary emphasis of his work is on habitat linkages of all scales.

He will discuss opportunities for wildlife bridges over the freeways in the Santa Clarita Valley. Wildlife bridges save animals and protect humans from accidents involving animals. Watch the video here of the successful wildlife bridge over the I-80 in Utah. We need a bridge like this here to save our mountain lions, bears, etc.

Goal Setting

Last year's goals were:
1) continuing our work to preserve the Santa Clara River,
2) working to reduce plastic pollution and promoting alternatives, and
3) protecting wildlife corridors in the SCV.

But with the pandemic, we did not get as much accomplished as we might have hoped. Shall we continue with these goals, add to them or change them?
