The event, formerly known as the Pisces Party, benefits EPIC’s efforts to restore the forests and watersheds of the North Coast of California. The Pisces Party is a celebration to welcome the coming spring and honor local activists who are working to create a healthy, sustainable forested landscape for flourishing nature and wildlife, and to safeguard earth’s valuable living resources in a changing climate for current and future generations.

In addition to celebrating long-time Pisces activists such as North Coast restoration advocate Richard Geinger as well as Sharon Duggan, Sue Malony, Greta Montagne, Bear Behr, Sam Johnson, Shawnee Alexandri, et al., EPIC will honor the Eel River Clean-up Project for their efforts to clean up trash and abandoned home encampments along the Eel river in Southern Humboldt County. The Eel River Clean-up Project is a collective of committed individuals who have shown remarkable dedication and garnered enormous success over the past several months.

Come early for drinks and a delicious dinner of mouth watering creations from Sue’s Organics!
