Jenner, the club and our water district, played a pivotal role in the purchase of this land due to our lawsuits over planned timber harvests in the Jenner creek watersheds. The goal of the new ownership is restoration of the once healthy Redwood and Douglas Fir forests, covering the spectacular coastal range.

The Harbor seals have made a remarkable comeback and the Salmon species are just beginning to make their own turnaround thanks to the endangered species act. The Jenner lagoon plays an important role in the protection of both salmonid and pinniped neighbor, protecting them is job one.
In the coming months we are going to continue the work done by many in this community to restore the beauty that is Jenner by the Sea. One project will be restoring the community center. Another is restoring the Jenner Creek as part of the continued comeback of the Salmon and Trout species. There has been a lot of discussion about the Jenner estuary steelhead and the historic Goat Rock Beach State Park jetty. We will be looking into The Biological Opinion that has called for managing the estuary as a summer lagoon to enhance conditions for steelhead to grow and thrive, giving them a better chance to survive ocean conditions.
We need to be diligent and continue the good work that the community and the club has done in the past. We need to look for grants and other funds that provides the club with a good financial outlook so we can use these resources for the continued restoration and protection of our town.
Please contact me if you want to work on a particular project, write grant proposals or donate to our cause.
