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 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.

Dear Jenner folks, as you may have heard, we lost our beloved JCC board member and friend, Sonja Flores. To celebrate her life, we are hosting a gathering on Sunday the 24th of April at 1 pm. This will be a pot luck, with the center providing bbq chicken, so folks are encouraged to bring side dishes, salad, or dessert. Its time for our annual giving campaign...for singles the cost is 35 clams and for families its 50 big ones. Friends we have a golden opportunity right now, as we have a wonderful crew of capable volunteers remodeling and upgrading our community center, please consider a one time generous donation of 100 or even 200 chuckwallas to help pay for supplies, windows, lumber, lighting etc. Lastly our annual big public meeting will be on June 26th, now if you are anything like me I don't expect you to remember that far ahead, so further notices will occur. Ps. Please send your generous dues/donations to PO box 1 thats po box 1 Jenner Ca 95450. For the Board I'm Cal Ares:::President
The club was and is deeply involved with the restoration of the woodlands and watersheds which surround Jenner. The great Rule Ranch, roughly 6,000 acres which mostly surrounds Jenner, has been sold to a group of open space entities which will keep it undeveloped for perpetuity.
