CoffeeGrounded ,

Fascinating and very informative!

I tuned in and discovered that Clear Lake was the topic of discussion. Having visited the area (my daughter and son-in-law live in Kelseyville), and enjoyed it’s beauty, both flora and fauna, I found myself immediately drawn to the presentation. A science class, a wealth of environmental knowledge, and immediately I felt the need to share it. Well darn, I don’t do Facebook, I’m on hiatus from Twitter and IG thru the Senate trial, but all is not lost. You’ve educated and entertained me to the utmost. I do hope you are recognized for your efforts, now go and post a link to your discussion on all social media boards. 😁 PLEASE!
