Here is a “heads up” item for North Monterey County residents who might like to be involved in decisions that can affect open space, habitat, and water quality projects in and around Castroville. On March 10th, next Tuesday, the Central Coast Wetlands Group will be holding a public meeting at the offices of the Castroville Community Services District.
The street address is 11499 Geil Street, in Castroville, and the meeting is scheduled from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Comida y bebidas gratis estarán disponible. Which means that free food and drinks will be provided. This will be a meeting for Spanish-speaking and English-speaking members of the community.
The Central Coast Wetlands Group, affiliated with the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, is a wetlands science research group serving the Central Coast of California. It works closely with regional and state partners to improve wetland science communication between researchers, resource managers, and policy makers. It not only does on the ground research, but also organizes and hosts meetings that bring groups of people together to collaborate on wetland-related efforts. There are lots of opportunities within the Castroville Community Services District to do just that. I encourage you to mark your calendar for the meeting next Tuesday.
