The Land Conservancy is sponsoring a Flood Preparedness Forum on Thursday 11/16/06 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m at the NCSD building, 148 W. Wilson Street, Nipomo, CA. The NCSD is providing the location, and the Land Conservancy is organizing the event, which hosts a list of impressive speakers.
The line up includes:
Herb Kandel-Land Conservancy; Jeff Werst-San Luis Obispo County Works Staff Engineer; Jill Falcone Public Works Environmental Resource Specialist; Madonna Dunbar NCSD Conservation Specialist; and Red Cross representatives. There will be sand bags available for purchase, for I believe .25 per bag. You can read the agenda here: Flood Forum Agenda
