WILD  Napa Lecture Series: Feed your curiosity about the wild things in our Napa River watershed. Upcoming topics include: July 12, Napa Library: Raptors in Rehab (see flier here: WNapa.Raptors.) Hear from Carol Poole from the Napa Wildlife Rescue about rehabilitating birds of prey. This monthly lecture series about Napa’s wildlife and habitats takes place on the second Wednesday of each month at the Napa County Library, 580 Coombs Street, Napa at 7:00 pm. These lectures are free, though donations are invited to help keep the series going. Also look for WILD American Canyon lectures every 3 months at the American Canyon Library. The next topic for WILD Saint Helena will be Mountain Lions with Felidae’s Bay Area Puma Project. Here is the flier WILD Mountain Lions WILD St. Helena began in March with the lecture on Salmon & Trout in the Napa River watershed, followed by Beaver in April and Raptors in Rehab in May. More details soon!

The Environmental Education Coalition of Napa County (EECNC) is hosting a film series. The next movie will be Watermark on Thursday, July 27th at 7pm at the Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center. This movie will knock your socks off and change your perspective on the water we all share on this blue planet of ours! Not to be missed! See the eecnc_film_series flier for more information.
