Know the West

New in the watershed

  When the nonprofit Western Ancient Forest Campaign (WAFC) sent Brian Vincent to California to set up a new office, he had a lot of terrain to choose from. He settled on Nevada City, Calif., one evening during a Watershed Council meeting, impressed by the sight of local Sierra Club and Earth First! members coming together with 40 other people. Now sharing an office with the South Yuba River Citizens' League, a nonprofit committed to protecting local rivers, Vincent is working on protecting ancient forests and endangered species, among other issues.
