About

The State of the Lake was originally planned as an in-person event to explore the many ways that local organizations and individuals are working to improve the health of Lake Almanor and the larger watershed around it. For this year, we're transitioning to digital panel discussions.

This digital event series consists of four one-hour panel discussions with local professionals.  Individual sessions will focus on a different aspect of regional ecology and how it intersects with the quality of life in our communities.

REVIEWS FOR THE FIRST PANEL:

"Very knowledgeable speakers."

"It was a good review of the watershed boundaries and the issues of those who are concerned.  Well prepared and delivered."

"Great overview of area and studies.  I was fascinated by Zeke's discussion of wildfire."
