The heart and soul of our community center and club is the celebration of life here in the little town that time forgot, Jenner by the Sea. The club and the center are dedicated to you, fellow Jennerites. To your happiest birthday party or to the loving celebration of the passing of a soul mate. The town comes together here at the Jenner Community Center.
The Jenner community has a storied history of coastal conservation dating back to the 1960s, when the entire Russian River mouth area was threatened with massive dredging and full scale development of the hillsides surrounding the basin. The beautiful landscapes that surround Jenner now are the result of great labors which continue to this day.
Living in this place of great beauty and diversity also means we have a great responsibility to our wild neighbors. Two of those neighbors are our wonderful Harbor Seal colony, also our once abundant but now highly endangered Coho salmon, and Steelhead trout. The Jenner lagoon plays an important role in the protection of both salmonid and pinniped neighbors.
The club was and is deeply involved with the restoration of the woodlands and watersheds which surround Jenner. The Rule Ranch, roughly 6,000 acres which mostly surrounds Jenner, has been purchased by Sonoma Land Trust and managed by The Wildlands Conservancy which will keep it undeveloped for perpetuity.
Message from the President
Greetings to members and friends of the Jenner Community Club.
Welcome All to the Annual Holiday Potluck at
Jenner Community Center
Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 4 pm.
On behalf of the Jenner Community Club Board of Directors it is amazing to look back on our work over the past six months. Most importantly to note, none of these projects would happen without the energy of volunteers. Thanks to everyone who keeps the Community Center warm and dry, light and airy and busy as ever with many committee projects. The Building crew, literally have accomplished major repairs and maintenance, like the new sliding glass door opening to the Northern creek side, the Landscape Design project is ready to blossom this Spring with plans and projects in place… the Archive Project has taken off with funds contributed to the Elinor Twohy Memorial Environmental Fund. All of these activities have inspired volunteers and have created lots of interest from our members.
The Board of Directors hit the deck running in June with the first project on the list –planning the Annual Labor Day weekend event, Fishstock 2019, netting over $11,000 toward our annual operating costs.
But most of all it amazing to share the incredible energy and skills of local folks who make it all happen…. 61 years of commitment to our environment, our community and to having fun together…..
Let’s go…. In 2020 we can continue to create positive results and complete the work begun…. Thanks to every one of our members, it only happens with your support!!!!
