The Sierra Club Lake Group will host Lake County Community Services Director, Lars Ewing, at their next community meeting on Thursday, May 25, 2023, at 6:00 PM. The discussion will be held via Zoom video conference and live-streamed on Facebook. The meeting is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required to attend via Zoom.
The County, under the direction of Ewing, is undertaking a comprehensive revision of the Lake County Trail Plan. It has been more than ten years since the formulation of the Konocti Regional Trails Plan, and a lot has changed since then, not only for recreational users but also regarding things like bike paths and safe routes to school.
“The revision process provides an opportunity to influence many aspects of trail planning that affect all of us,” explained Victoria Brandon, Conservation Chair of the Sierra Club Lake Group. Community members will hear a presentation and are invited to share questions, thoughts and ideas.
To register for the event, visit the Lake Group’s online calendar at: www.sierraclub.org/redwood/lake.
Registrants will receive access information upon registration and a confirmation reminder the morning of the event. Zoom space is limited, so the event will also be live-streamed via the Lake Group’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/sierraclublake.
The Sierra Club Lake Group represents more than 400 Sierra Club members living in Lake County and is part of the Redwood Chapter of the Sierra Club that represents the northwest region of California.
The group works to preserve Lake County’s wild heritage; protect and restore Clear Lake and its watershed; and promote smart growth, sustainable practices and environmentally friendly development. It also fosters a meaningful connection to the environment for the community to value and enjoy through guided hikes and community events. (Note: guided hikes are on hold while the group secures hike leaders.
