    Environmental Solutions for Communities Overview

    Wells Fargo and the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation seek to promote sustainable communities through Environmental Solutions for Communities by supporting highly-visible projects that link economic development and community well-being to the stewardship and health of the environment. Collectively, investments under this initiative will promote a sustainable future for communities by:

    • Supporting sustainable agricultural practices and private lands stewardship;
    • Conserving critical land and water resources and improving local water quality;
    • Restoring and managing natural habitat, species and ecosystems that are important to community livelihoods;
    • Facilitating investments in green infrastructure, renewable energy and energy efficiency; and
    • Encouraging broad-based citizen and targeted youth participation in project implementation.

    Round 2: Objectives, Strategies and Alignment
    Join us for the next step in the development of the Strategic Plan for the Future of Integrated Regional Water Management in California by participating in the second round of workshops that will be held in October and November 2013 (see dates and locations below). Like the first round, these workshops will be free and open to the public. The workshops will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break.
    The Round 2 workshops are intended to build upon the extensive input received from stakeholders during the first round of workshops held in April and May 2013. However, anyone can join in and fully participate in the second round of workshops without having attended one of the first workshops.
    Using the goal statements developed at the first round of workshops, the Round 2 workshops will provide an opportunity to:
    • Discuss how federal, state, regional, and local government laws, regulations, and policies could better align with integrated regional water management; and
    • Help shape the objectives and strategic approaches that are needed for the Strategic Plan.
    Register
    If you plan on attending one or more of the workshops, please register for the workshop(s) by using this link: http://irwm.rmcwater.com/stakeholder/wsr2-registration.php.
    Registration will guarantee your spot at the workshop and ensure you receive preparatory informational materials prior to the workshops.
