The Petaluma River is not only a popular water way for sports and fun, it also shaped our city’s history and heritage. This week I found some interesting information about our River I thought was worth sharing. Jaringan Tokek recently blogged on our river in an article called Petaluma River – Petaluma River California on Friday, October 24, 2014 which covers the habitat, ecology and history of our river. Petaluma also has a non-profit organization called the Friends of the Petaluma River whose goal is to celebrate and conserve the Petaluma River, its wetlands, and wildlife. They support education and activities around our river and created several annual events around our river including the Petaluma Watershed Celebration, Petaluma River Clean-Up, Winter Fandango Gala, River Heritage Days, and let’s not forget the popular Rivertown Revival.
The North Bay Rowing Club (NBRC) had an outstanding regatta up in Oregon this past weekend. The Juniors travelled up for their final race before Southwest Regional Championships in May. The squad competed at the Covered Bridge Regatta on Dexter Lake, Oregon outside Eugene. 32 athletes competed in 11 events and came away with three gold, a silver and four bronze medals.
