TuCare’s Natural Resources Summit Tomorrow

Sponsored by:

California State Senator Dave Cogdill is inviting members of the community to the annual Natural Resources Summit tomorrow, Friday October 1st.

The 10th annual Natural Resources Summit at the Motherlode Fairgrounds will be an informative day of discussion with local, state and national experts on forestry, water management and climate change.

Senator Cogdill was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Two of the invited national speakers are Mark Rey, the former Undersecretary of Natural Resources and Environment in the US Department of Agriculture during the Bush Administration as well as Patrick Michaels, Climatologist and American Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.

Senator Cogdill along with other community leaders and representatives will be attending the Summit.

The day before the Summit, there will be a Forestry Tour on September 30th from 9am – 3pm, with a motor-coach taking participants to and from the fairgrounds.

The Natural Resources Summit itself is a four hour event from 9am – 1pm, with a continental breakfast served beginning at 8:30am. Thanks to the generosity of TuCare (Tuolumne County Reliance for Resources and Environment), there is no cost to attend the event.

TuCare stands for Tuolumne County Alliance for Resources and Environment, Inc. It was established to enlighten and advise the public on conservation and the wise use of our natural resources.

TuCare is involved in issues related to public and private lands usage which TuCARE feels is essential for a vital and functioning local, and state economy and the organization has provided various educational programs to school children, which at times, includes hands-on field trips.

Indivdual and family memberships are $40 per year. Business memberships are only $130 per year. There are special funds that can be supported as well.

Donations can be made by calling (209) 586-7816 or by logging onto

The “Newsmaker of the Day” can be heard each weekday morning at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47 on AM-1450 KVML.
