Attending the 9th Annual Pisces Party helps support the ongoing work of environmental protector, restorationist and Sempervirens Lifetime Achievement Award winner—Richard Gienger.
Richard Gienger has been a resident of the North Coast of California for more than forty years. In that time he has established himself as a field restoration expert, overseeing hundreds of projects and mentoring aspiring ecological restoration specialists, Richard is also dedicated to monitoring policy developments in the state capitol, taking innumerable trips to Sacramento to advocate for a more robust environmental management framework. His tenaciousness with decision makers is only matched by his talent for the rock-work that has set a region wide standard for quality stream and landscape restoration efforts. Richard is truly committed to contributing to the design of a dignified and sustainable forest products industry on the North Coast, as well as to thriving restoration economy.
Though Richard is known to wear many organizational hats, EPIC has maintained a long-term financial commitment to Richard and his work. Coming out to the Pisces Party and/or making a special donation to the funds that allow EPIC to support Richard’s advocacy is a great way to show your appreciation for one of the region’s most stalwart defenders of our environment and natural resources, as well as the communities that live closest to them.
If you are unable to attend the Pisces Party in person, but would like to help support Richard’s work you may make a donation here.
We are looking for businesses, artisans, craftspeople and any other willing donors to make a contribution to the silent auction. If you would like to make a donation please call 707-822-7711 or email Natalynne@wildcalifornia.org.
