The North Fork Preservation Association (NFPA) will be presenting a “Tribute to the Activism of John Frederick” during their annual meeting at the Community Hall on Saturday, July 28.
North Fork Historian Lois Walker will be presenting a slide show of John’s life followed by speakers who will talk about decades of challenges that threatened the extraordinary ecosystem of the North Fork. These stories will describe historical campaigns to stop oil drilling, coal mining, road paving, and clearcutting. John Frederick worked for decades to save the North Fork from all kinds of forces that would have changed it forever…. and he did so while building respectful relationships with people who did not agree with him.
The program starts at 7:30, but you are also invited to a potluck supper at 5:30. For more information, see the NFPA Newsletter.
The new NFPA t-shirt will be on sale also.
