Hello Reservoir Friends!

We at the Reservoirs Conservancy hope you are enjoying your summer and managing the heat and humidity. We have been working to maintain all the good progress made earlier this year on Armstrong, and hope you’ll be able to join us for our next community volunteer event this Sunday from 9am to 1pm (or any part of that you can manage). We need your help to keep things alive and kicking through their first year (like this California native artemesia). We’ll have tools, gloves, water and info re: future reservoir improvements. Your support is really important and we hope to see you on Sunday. If you can let us know, it will help us better support your efforts. Just drop us a line at Thanks!
