Reservations are due Wednesday for a meet-and-greet event Friday in St. Helena sponsored by the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area Conservation Partnership. The group of regional stakeholders is working to conserve the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area west of Davis.
The event will run from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Pope Valley Farm Center, 5700 Chiles Pope Valley Road in St. Helena.
“This is a great opportunity to meet the new program director, Mary Adelzadeh, and learn about initiatives to conserve the natural and working landscape of the region,” a news release said. “At the meeting, partners and members of the public will be invited to introduce themselves and their conservation work/interests in the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area.”
Appetizers and drinks will be served. To RSVP, call Adelzadeh at 530-402-5404 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 1997, the partnership provides a forum for public and private land managers to meet and discuss conservation activities and interests. The group has since grown to more than 100 members, including federal and state agencies, counties and other public entities, local businesses, nonprofit organizations and conservation-minded landowners — all with the common goal of promoting collaborative conservation of the natural and working landscape of the Blue Ridge-Berryessa Natural Area.
