State of the Lake
State of the Lake
a four-part speaker series
“The State of the Lake” is an online series, co-hosted by the Sierra Institute for Environment and Community, to share and learn about watershed health, local land management, and community efforts in the Almanor Basin. The State of the Lake was originally planned as an in-person event, but due to COVID-19 we adapted it to a virtual series. The summer series has concluded but because of great participation and engagement we are planning to host more virtual events like this. Stay tuned!
