Friday March 14th, 6pm, at the Beginnings “Octagon” in Briceland.
After more than a decade of annual celebrations, the Pisces Party has become a North Coast Community tradition and a harbinger of the coming spring. The party is an annual fundraiser to honor and support Mendocino resident and North Coast restoration advocate, Richard Gienger. The Pisces Party has become a cornerstone of community efforts to support Richard’s ongoing work to restore the forests and watersheds of the North Coast of California.
Since 1977, Richard has been a tireless advocate for community-based forestry, and is well known for his role in protecting Sally Bell Grove, an ancient forest along the Mendocino Coast that would later become part of the Sinkyone Wilderness, as well as his ability to engage with natural resource agencies and policy makers in Sacramento. Richard is highly regarded for his policy work to advance forest conservation measures that benefits California’s rural communities.
EPIC and the Trees Foundation have come together to produce this important and fun annual event in order to secure the support necessary to keep Richard working to protect and restore the forests, wildlife and waterways of Northwest California.
The party starts at 6pm with a no-host bar and music by the Ken and Maria Jorgenson’s Falling Rocks.
Dinner: Sue’s Organic’s is serving dinner at 6:30 featuring: Black-bean Coconut Soup, a tossed Green Salad with toasted, spiced sunflower seeds and Sue’s Organics tahini dressing along with Veggie Enchiladas filled with Butternut Squash, Kale, Onions, Fried Tempeh & Cheese ($10-20 sliding scale for dinner).
After dinner the No Good Redwood Ramblers  will get people on their feet to their foot-stompin’ blue-grass sounds.

Admission $10-20 sliding scale at the door.
