Supporter Spotlight

“Edith has been a local business owner and artist for over ten years. I’ve been a commuter for the last 14. The arrival of our children has dramatically changed our interactions with our city, giving us new eyes to experience the complex interplay of natural beauty and vibrant culture throughout our neighborhoods. We’re saddened by the difficulties the community faces in balancing services and respectful behavior in public spaces, and see the river as a critical connector serving alternative transportation, nature, the downtown and surrounding communities, the beach and an uncommon greenbelt of parks. We believe in the connection of community and water, are working to instill that in our children, and are excited to see that rekindled through the efforts of CWC.”

Drew and Edith Meyer

“The reason we enjoy working with the Coastal Watershed Council is the positive energy they bring to the community. Since our business is so close to the San Lorenzo River, it means a lot to us to support an organization that is working so hard to protect this valuable part of the Santa Cruz environment. We believe that taking care of the earth is just as important as taking care of our bodies, because we only have one of each.”

Jaimi Ellison

Santa Cruz Core Fitness + Rehab

“I ride along the river trail about twice a week, often with my family and grandkids. The San Lorenzo River is one of the natural wonders of Santa Cruz, weaving in and out of public spaces downtown. It is a critical connector for alternative transportation. I love biking beside nature and use the corridor to accomplish my chores across town. The connection between water and the community instills an appreciation for nature in my grandchildren. Sereno Group and I have a strong commitment to preserving the river and our natural resources. We are currently contributing 1% of our commissions to the Coastal Watershed Council. I’m excited to see what we can achieve with our 1% for Good campaign for the San Lorenzo River.”

Terri Mayall

Santa Cruz Sereno Group

“I have lived half a block from the San Lorenzo River for 19 years. During that time, I have loved walking six different dogs along the Riverwalk, from Great Danes to my current 5 lb. ‘Chorkie,’ Sophie. Sophie is now 17 years old, deaf and mostly blind and our favorite place to walk is still by the river. A couple of years ago, I met CWC Executive Director Greg Pepping. I was so impressed with the work he, CWC and San Lorenzo River Alliance are doing to improve life on the river for people and nature. It is an honor to be a monthly donor and volunteer for CWC and I invite others to join me in supporting CWC as you are able.”

Gail Evans

“I founded Adventure Out 10 years ago with the mission of re-connecting people with nature. In addition to our programming, we have a strong commitment to conservation and donate 1% of gross revenues to environmental charities each year as members of the 1% For The Planet Alliance.  Donating to CWC is an exciting opportunity to simultaneously support an environmental cause as well as a civic movement to transform Santa Cruz’s relationship with our river – given our mission statement, it is a perfect fit.  I am thrilled to back CWC in taking leadership to revitalize the San Lorenzo River to be a place where nature thrives and our citizens can interact with a wild and healthy freshwater ecosystem.”
