The Sequoia Forest Coalition.
Protecting our Giant Sequoias. I had an amazing weekend meeting and unifying with all the NGO’s of Sequoia National Forest planning and preparing to defend our forest and rivers.
This Sunday I organized a fly fishing workshop with the help of my partners from @californiatrout @kernriverflyshop and @ssffclub to help benefit @kernriverconservancy wild trout outreach programs. We had a great turn out and raised over $1000 to help jump start the program. If you’d like to help, shoot me a dm.
Our fly fishing workshop is just around the corner. Get your tickets now for this event. Event info link is in our bio. Space is limited to 25 students. All proceeds benefit our heritage trout outreach program on the Kern River. This workshop is open for all levels. Beginner to advanced.
The Pebble Mine would put this entire place at a huge risk and knowing that it could potentially harm this entire ecosystem is heartbreaking. Not only would it put my family’s way of life a risk, but an entire commercial fishing industry, sport fishing industry, subsistence fishery and of course all the wildlife that depend on this annual return to survive. It’s the wrong place for a mine of this type to be built and we have to do whatever we can to protect it. .......................................

Thank you @camillegdorf for taking over our feed this week!
Tried to pop open my new roof top tent but the winds were howling and bending the trees backwards as you can see in the background. So I opted for a shot with all the smoke from the Lion fire casting haze over the river.
