Dear Northern California CalUWild friends—

We just learned this morning that Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA1) will be hosting a listening session for the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative at UC Davis on July 7 (next Wednesday). You may recall that Rep. Thompson was the author of the Northcoast Wild Heritage Act a few years ago, and we appreciate his willingness to be involved in the AGO process now.

Among Rep. Thompson’s guests will be:

Nancy Sutley, Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality
Will Shafroth, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife and Parks
Senior EPA staff

Please RSVP by July 6 to Rep. Thompson’s Legislative Director Jonathan Birdsong ( if you plan to attend.

Here are the details:

Vanderhoef Studio Theatre
Robert & Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts

We apologize for the short notice. This meeting does not appear on the AGO website, so we could not list it in the recent June Update.

Also: We tried to send this announcement out only to people who might be in a position to attend or might otherwise be interested. If you received it and could not possibly attend, please send me an email with at least your home or work ZIP code and Congressional District. That will help us improve the functioning of our database. Thanks!

Hope to see you there. And Happy 4th of July,
