Monterey Symphony Sound Waves – Concert I @ Sunset Center
Oct 20 – Oct 21 all-day

 

The Monterey Symphony will open the 73rd season – Sound Waves – with Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great;” and a new work from composer Alex Berko, commissioned in collaboration with the Big Sur Land Trust, entitled Among Waves.

Berko, an exceptional student at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, spent a week in residence at the Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, drawing inspiration from the deep beauty of the landscape for inclusion in his new orchestral work. Glen Deven Ranch played a role in the first commission with the Big Sur Land Trust, resulting in Big Sur, the Night Sun by esteemed composer John Wineglass. Do not miss this opportunity to hear the premier of the Alex Berko’s Among Waves, the second work in this series, with Max Bragado-Darman and the Monterey Symphony!

Join us one hour prior to every performance for our pre-concert lectures.

9th Annual Heroes Open Golf Tournament @ Bayonet and Black Horse
Oct 27 @ 7:30 am – 3:30 pm

The Heroes Open is a fundraising golf tournament in support of the California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery.

Funds go to support continued construction and operations of the cemetery through the California Central Coast Cemetery Foundation. The event is conducted by the United Veterans Council of Monterey County which is a not for profit organization registered with the IRS providing tax deduction for donors.

On September 30 we received the news that the US Department of Veterans Affairs has paid to the California Department of Veterans Affairs the amount of $6.8 million to cover the costs of construction for the first phase of the California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery on the former Ft. Ord.  This is a giant step forward and will go a long way toward relieving demand for the inurnment of remains in the 5000 niche columbarium to be constructed in this phase.

We must remember that this is only Phase 1.  We still need to complete the cemetery to provide in ground sites for both caskets and urns.  That will require further local money in order to get the US Department of Veterans Affairs to provide the necessary funding.  Beyond that there are plans for a chapel, an amphitheater, and a museum which must be funded entirely from local money.  That is what the Heroes Open is all about.

We do not want a partial cemetery.  We want, need and deserve the finished product.  If you have already supported us, THANK YOU!  If you have not yet done your part please step up now and make the dream a reality.

Cal-IPC Symposium @ Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa
Nov 7 @ 1:00 pm – Nov 9 @ 4:40 pm

Land managers, researchers, and conservationists will gather for the 27th annual Cal-IPC Symposium in Monterey! Stewarding biological diversity is inherent in Cal-IPC’s mission. Protecting cultural and intellectual diversity is important to our success as well. The 2018 Cal-IPC Symposium explores the ways our work spans these areas, with the theme “BioDiversity: Expanding Our Vision.”

We’ll have the latest in invasive plant biology and management, with talks, posters, trainings, discussion groups, and field trips on projects addressing invasive plants from riparian, grassland, mountain, coastal, and aquatic/wetland habitats. Attendees will share information about effective tools, relevant research, non-chemical management approaches as well as the latest on herbicides. Special sessions will cover: revival of Weed Management Areas; coastal management efforts; fire ecology and post-fire recovery: restoration approaches; prioritization, mapping, and management; outreach & communications; aquatic weed management; biocontrols; equity, diversity, and inclusion in land management; non-plant invasive species; addressing Phytophthora in restoration; research on invasive plant biology and management; and regional planning and funding.

Wednesday features training sessions, including Invasive Plant Management 101, Calflora’s Weed Manager, and Best Management Practices for Controlling Phytophthora in Restoration. The main conference sessions take place all day Thursday and Friday. Field trips on Saturday explore invasive plant management efforts in the region. See the schedule on the Registration page.

Come exchange knowledge with the amazing network of land stewards in California! We look forward to another great opportunity to network, share, and learn.
