The Butte Environmental Council hosted the Environment Coalition Gathering this last Friday. Attended by something on the order of 25 local environmental groups and the Peace Panel Project's, Chico Tree Advocates was there. It was one of the better speeches I ever delivered. I finished to a rousing applause; as I walked back to my table, Robyn said "Powerful". And Lucas of the Sacramento River Preservation Trust said I "rocked the house". Got some brochures out and got some volunteers signed up. It was a good night.
