Sonoma County Environmental Stewardship Panel: Education, Predators & Balanced Ecosystems
August 7 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
This panel was formed to create an open, amicable, and educational discussion regarding wildlife management, land conversion, local policy & livestock predation, specifically addressing how these issues affect our local food supply & grazing for fire fuel load reduction.
This is a grassroots effort to gather information, experience, and knowledge in a manner that honors and respects all voices. To bring together all parties of an emotionally heightened, culturally fractioning topic in order to provide education, while reducing the animosity between sides. We are attempting to create a methodology and template in which we can experience and consider a viewpoint that is different from our own while realizing that we can agree with aspects of both sides of the argument. We (the general public, farmers, researchers, and governmental entities) are all connected and will never move forward in the discussion of these topics without flexibility, respect, and empathy.
Moving forward, we hope to develop two more panels to step this grassroots effort into creating more well-rounded policy & to provide management systems that support all different parties involved.
