From the Napa Valley Register, by Steve Orndorf:

… the county’s Wildlife Conservation Commission is privileged to distribute grant money to organizations that contribute to improving our local environmental conditions and to educating everyone on the importance of the related issues. Money comes to the commission as a result of Fish and Wildlife violation-related fines, occasional fines leveled by our courts for environmental-related landowner violations, and periodic additional funding from the county’s general fund.

Friends of the Napa River is one of the six groups to whom money was recently granted.
