2014 FRC Fundraiser Success:
As we fast approach the holiday season, it is undoubtedly time to reflect on the year past. For the Fall River Conservancy, this year has been one of fishing, scientific research, strengthening our partnerships, and of course, securing funding to expand our conservation work. In September of this year the Fall River Conservancy hosted the 2nd Fall River Conservancy fundraiser at the Family Club in San Francisco, and it was undeniably a success- all thanks to you. The night was memorable for many reasons, but largely because of those who made the great effort to be there to support the river they know and love.
For those who weren’t there with us, some highlights from the night included: watching our 2014 Fall River Conservancy video, hearing about our conservation strategy moving forward from our new FRC Board Chairman Dave Powell, Sr., an update from our scientific partners at UC Davis Watershed Sciences Center, and recognition of the new California Trout Executive Director Curtis Knight. California Trout has been an important partner of the Fall River Conservancy since the beginning, and we are proud to have CalTrout’s support moving forward under Curtis’ leadership.
FRC Fundraiser Goal Matched with National Fish and Wildlife Funding
All in all, it was a great night and we thank you all for standing behind the Fall River Conservancy to make the work that we do possible. Due to the generosity of our donors and supporters, we raised over at $75,000 at this years fundraiser, and we have already matched this with grant-funds from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. This marks a great opportunity moving forward in 2015 and beyond for the Fall River Conservancy to expand it’s conservation mission by continuing to fund and support important conservation research that will lead to on-the-ground restoration of the Fall River.
