The impetus for this blog was the Patagonia Voice Your Choice program and when that ended I deflated like a balloon and haven't posted since. Now that we are looking at a great summer with our Comstock worker, Cora, I am excited about catching you up on the past year and moving forward with summer 2009.

Congratulations to

Great Basin Water Network

as the community

choice to receive the


grant for $4000. They will do a great job using the money to affect decisions about water transfers from northern to southern Nevada.

We finished 2008 with Conserve Carson River Work Days in Carson and Dayton Valleys. Students from Douglas, Dayton, Silver State Charter School, and Silver Stage High Schools did a great job working with elementary kids from Minden, Gardnerville, CC Meneley, Dayton, Hugh Gallagher, Sutro, Riverview and Silver Springs elementary schools. Nearly 500 students worked along the banks of the Carson River, protecting habitat and learning about the watershed.
