Event description
This free virtual book release and art exhibit party about the Russian River Watershed takes place December 11 from 4:30-5:30pm on Zoom.

About this Event

The 110-mile Russian River flows like a ribbon of silver through the valleys of Mendocino and Sonoma counties, providing drinking water for thousands of people, a home for fish and other riparian critters, and irrigation for crops. But only people who live on its banks or who regularly spend time on its waters can attest to the changing beauty of the Russian River and its many colors, moods and seasons.

Produced by Sonoma Land Trust and Sonoma Water, The Russian River and Its Watershed book tells the story of the river through 41 full-color paintings by local artist Richard McDaniel and the voices of local essayists — including author and tribal leader Greg Sarris and historian Gaye LeBaron. From a sighting of a single osprey to a real-life fish story to a life-changing canoe trip, the stories told by the authors are as varied as the river itself.

During this virtual book release and art exhibit party, you will be treated to an interview with the artist out on the river as well as a viewing of each of his stunning Impressionistic paintings comprising the book. In addition, we’ll enjoy readings from a handful of the essay authors, including Sarris, LeBaron and Herman G. Hernandez, and visit with some of our Sonoma County Supervisors as they open the book for the first time!

Please join us for this quintessential Sonoma County event.
