Join us Thursday June 15, 2023 from 7 pm to 8 pm as we welcome our guest speaker Alvaro Palacios Casanova as he discusses the efforts to protect Molok Luyuk, Sacred Land to the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation. This event is virtual and will be held on Zoom.
Álvaro Palacios Casanova is an advocate dedicated to using my expertise in environmental science and policy to advance justice for people and the environment. This month’s CreekSpeak, Alvaro will be presenting about the California Native Plant Society, and its coalition partners, efforts to expand Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument to include Molok Luyuk, which are public lands on the eastern edge of the current monument. Molok Luyuk (pronounced Ma.Lok Lue.yoke) means Condor Ridge in the Patwin Language and is sacred land to the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation. Protecting Molok Luyuk will help preserve biodiversity and critical wildlife corridors, popular activities like hiking, camping, and legal OHV use. You can learn more at expandberryessa.org.
The Zoom link for the event will be sent the day before the event to the email you’ve registered with.
