Together We Can

Stopped by the 4th St. Gallery tonight.
Eric Zahn and Taylor Parker and various friends have set up an exhibit of wetlands photos and videos to encourage the rest of us to get involved and help save the precious remnants of those few wetlands still extant in our beleagured City.
I watched Taylor, then Eric, struggle with a laptop/TV interface to get the video presentation up and running. A dollop of creative cursing under one's breath and "Voila", success!
I chatted with old friends Gordana and Joe from Surfrider, signed up for the silent auction, admired Timothy's photos of Los Cerritos Wetlands.
The main event is Saturday evening with an 'opportunity drawing' (that would be a PC raffle), the aforementioned 'silent auction', snacks, grog, a chance to do a little good.
See you there, fellow salt marsh lovers. Drop by to benefit Los Cerritos Wetlands Landtrust, Friends of Colorado Lagoon and Eco-Link.
