Reflection/Evaluation

Here are my comments to my state legislators

I strongly urge you to support the Lorraine Loomis Act for Salmon Recovery. If passed, this act would require that rivers and streams are surrounded by tall trees and vegetation which would help keep the water cool. It would also establish the Riparian Habitat Conservation Grant Program to cover 70-90% of project costs needed to protect, maintain, and restore riparian management zones. Furthermore, the act would provide oversight and accountability, monitor habitat conditions, and adapt the program over time. Monitoring is essential to long-term success. Thank you.:
