Dear San Geronimo Valley Stewards,

Please consider attending a seminar July 2nd at Spirit Rock that will help creek side property owners understand how to stabilize creek banks using contemporary fish friendly methods. Speakers with both first hand knowledge of the San Geronimo Valley creek and experience at the State and National level will present solutions to creek bank problems some of us inherited.

We hope to see you there,
