REI presentations

Tonight, I finished the second of my presentations at REI. Their outreach coordinator, Christian McNeil, had asked me to tell their members and visitors about the restoration. A handful of folks showed up to the presentation and asked mostly about the historical features of the creek and surrounding neighborhood. Christian said that they'd publicize our workdays and possibly formally sponsor it as a REI workday.

We're planning on scheduling two workdays per month in Sept., Oct. and Nov. With that amount of time, we should make some good headway on cleaning out much of the light trash in the area. We're also working with the owner of the rice mill across the street from Japhet to use his facilities for a fundraising event and volunteer appreciation event. More details as they arise.
