Centennial Dam Watchdog Activist Summit THIS MONDAY

Join us THIS MONDAY, March 13, at Nevada Theatre for the Centennial Dam Watchdog Activist Summit, 401 Broad St, Nevada City, from 6pm-8pm.

Hear from experts in community activism, local history, hydrology, law, ecology, and water politics. Speakers will provide information about the scope and cost of the proposed project, the risks associated with building the dam, sustainable alternatives, and how community members can take action to challenge this controversial proposal. The event will be moderated by Yubanet and broadcast live by KVMR 89.5. 

The Activist Summit will not only address what is at stake from an environmental, community, and cultural perspective, but provide an opportunity for citizens to participate, engage, and hold NID accountable. Audience members will learn how local groups are closely following the permitting process and watchdogging NID’s attempts to gain ownership of land publicly held by the Bureau of Land Management.
