December 14, 2016 Leave a comment

Come learn with us! The next WILD NAPA lecture will be Wednesday, March 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the Napa Library: Freshwater shrimp!

Another full house for WILD Napa: Salmon and Trout, as Jonathan Koehler, Senior Biologist for the Napa County Resource Conservation District gave a talk about these fascinating fish and their populations in the Napa River and its tributaries to over 100 interested attendees. These lectures are offered free of charge, though donations are certainly appreciated.

coyoteThe library was packed for our January lecture on “Living with Coyotes” with Kelli Hendricks, Ranching Coordinator for Project Coyote. Kelli will be presenting again on Saturday, February 25 at 10:30 at the Carolyn Parr Nature Center, if you missed it. (RSVP requested.)

Up next in the series: Freshwater Shrimp on March 8th, Oak Galls (prepare to have your mind boggled!) on April 12, and Skunks on May 10th. The lecture series is expanding! There will be a WILD American Canyon lecture on edible plants at the American Canyon Library on March 15 at 7pm. WILD St. Helena will begin in March with a repeat performance of “Salmon and Trout” – stay tuned for details!

River Concert for Friends at CIA Copia

Saturday Evening – October 8th, 2016img_6349

It was a beautiful evening for Friends of the Napa River’s intimate fundraiser and concert at the newly renovated CIA Copia. The Napa Valley Youth Symphony and Kellie Fuller and Quartet filled the warm air with lovely music for an amphitheater full of guests. The setting could not have been more lovely, with the setting sun, and then the moonlight sparkling on the Napa River behind the stage. Thank you to the Culinary Institute of America for graciously hosting us, thank you sponsors, and thanks to all of the Napa River Community.

More wonderful photos from the evening can be found on Napa Valley Life Social Page and October 9th Napa Valley Register.

The River needs Friends! Join us! Volunteer, donate; share your ideas,  photos,  questions!

A warm thank you to the many businesses and artists who donated fun items to our auction and raffle, and to our major Sponsors:
