In California we have many opportunities as individuals to make a difference in the watersheds we love and fish. Take SB 670 for example. SB 670 is a bill that was passed with bi-partisan support in both houses of the legislature and puts a moratorium on recreational suction dredging for gold. If signed by the governor the moratorium will remain in effect until a court ordered environmental review can develop and implement appropriate standards and environmental protections.
What is needed now is for concerned individuals to write the governor and ask him to sign the bill into law. Take a few minutes and click on the links below. I would encourage you to read, educate yourself and then write the governor in support of this bill. You might be amazed at what happens when lots of concerned individuals take action.
