Little Tree Acoustic is hosting an online benefit concert to support Unite the Parks' fight to save the Southern Sierra Nevada Pacific fisher, a newly listed endangered species.
Hello. I am Dr. Joseph Werne, Chief Scientist for Unite the Parks. By day I am a working scientist who specializes in geo- and astro-physical fluid turbulence, but by night I am a house-concert host who started the Little Tree Acoustic House Concert series over a decade ago. For Unite the Parks I have been working hard with my friend Deanna Wulff to save the Pacific fisher and the Southern Sierra Nevada, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. In fact it has been designated one of only 35 biodiversity hotspots worldwide. "Biodiversity hotspot" is actually a technical term for critical areas that we need to safeguard in order to retain our planet's vital and vulnerable biological richness.
We have an ongoing fundraiser to support this work, including an online benefit concert hosting some of our favorite performers who have played in the Little Tree Acoustic House Concert series over the past twelve years. The online concert will be on Dec 6 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time (6 p.m. Mountain, 7 p.m. Central, 8 p.m. Atlantic). The show will be delivered with studio sound and full 1080p resolution, and we will gather together immediately afterward on zoom to meet Unite the Parks staff, engage with some of the performers, and answer any questions you have for Unite the Parks.This will be a fun community-building event! Look for more info here soon ....
Our goal is to protect the endangered Pacific fisher and the entire Southern Sierra Nevada. Our path to get there has five primary campaign elements:
1) Build congressional support for a Range of Light National Monument bill. We already have 21 members of the House in support!
2) Continue to grow our grassroots support. We've spent 7 years working with local activists and have hundreds of businesses and local leaders behind us!
3) File a lawsuit to protect the endangered Pacific fisher, a cute tree dweller that needs big trees, an interconnected habitat and a forest free from logging.
4) Educate and train student activists in environmental advocacy and communications with our internship program.
5) Train at-risk youth in outdoor adventure, education, self-awareness and leadership in the beautiful Southern Sierra Nevada.
Let's get it done!
