Several looks at the Gualala River and a community meeting Thursday, 3/17 at 5:30 pm.

Last week Rick Denniston photographed the Gualala River. You can see the tree with the root ball lodged in the sandbar.

The next day, after a pretty big storm, this is what Rick saw. The tree with the root ball is now hanging over the eroded sandbar.

The muddy water stretched far out into the Pacific Ocean.

There is a community meeting tomorrow, Thursday March 17th, at 5:30 pm at the Gualala Community Center regarding a terrible timber harvest plan in the floodplain of the Gualala River dubbed "Dogwood." Hope to see some of you there!

For more information about the “Dogwood” logging plan, here's the link to Friends of the Gualala River website:

Thanks to Rick and Bob for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
