ALL -  

A big thanks to the Trinity County Resource Conservation District and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for all their good work on the Trinity River AND in the Community Forest in Weaverville.  The TCRCD's Manager, Pat Frost, will be in Washington DC with BLM Redding folks (Steve Anderson and Walter Herzog) receiving a partners in conservation award from the Secretary of Interior tomorrow.   Way to go!

I bet that Pat will even be wearing a tie!
