Restore the Delta and Dan Bacher

Two of my sources for information on what is really going on in the California Delta are Dan Bacher, editor of The Fish Sniffer magazine and Barbara Barrigan-Parilla, Campaign Director for Restore the Delta. If you read this blog, you see them each mentioned more than once.

In a press release today, Bacher presents his Leaping Steelhead Conservation Awards for 2007, and here is his citation for Barrigan-Parilla.
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta campaign coordinator, was a key leader in anti-canal efforts by issuing regular “Delta Flows” updates pointing out how a canal and increased exports weren’t the answer to the Delta’s problems. She convened a number of forums on the Delta, including superb presentations by Mark Franco, headman of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe, and Dante Nomellini, a water rights attorney and Delta farmer, in opposition to the canal. For her great activism, she receives the “Stop the Peripheral Canal” award.
Dan got this one right.
