Protect the river

I thank The Bee for reporting on positive developments in respect to our beautiful and invaluable San Joaquin River. And congratulations to the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust, Friant Water Users Authority, the Bay Institute of San Francisco, the state and federal agencies and many others for collaborating to develop the public education program, "Our Land. Our River. Our Way of Life."

The public service announcements released recently mark an important milestone for groups involved with the future of the San Joaquin River, and represent unique cooperation among diverse interests who each recognize the importance of the San Joaquin River as a vital public resource.

Through continued collaboration, we can protect the San Joaquin River for farmers, wildlife and for future generations.
