Help Protect 158 Miles Of Wild & Scenic Rivers On The Central Coast
Piru Creek River Clean upRepresentative Lois Capps has introduced legislation in Congress to protect more than 158 miles of Wild & Scenic Rivers, 245,500 acres of Wilderness, and 34,500 acres of Scenic Areas on public lands in the Central Coast counties of Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo. H.R. 4685 also proposes to establish the Condor National Recreation Trail.
Take the Drought Action Pledge and Email  Governor Brown - Dam's won't make water!

Piru Creek gone dryCalifornia’s severe drought reminds us how precious and limited water is.  We can help by doing our part to use it wisely.  While there is a lot of talk about building new dams, they cost billions of dollars and take a decade or more to build.  So, new dams won’t help us with the drought, but they will do more harm to the rivers we love and we already have more than 1,400 of major dams in the state. 

Water conservation and efficiency is cheap or even free.  Friends of the River is working to advance these solutions to meet our water needs without doing more harm to rivers.  You can help by taking this drought pledge as a first step.
