Banducci Challenge Grant to Support NEC!
Don and Maggie Banducci, long-time supporters of the NEC, have generously offered $5000 challenge grant to help out the NEC during these tough times. However, there is a catch and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The NEC will receive the $5000.00 from the Banducci Challenge Grant only if we can raise $5000 in pledges within two weeks.
The clock is ticking and we need to receive all pledges by August 9th.
You will receive a free “Un-Dam The Klamath” bumper sticker with your pledge. And contributors who pledge $100 or more will receive a FREE Northcoast Environmental Center T-Shirt! These shirts may someday be collector’s items.
We can accept cash, check or credit card for your pledge. Drop by the NEC, or mail your check to 1465 G Street, Arcata, CA 95521. Remember to note that it is for the Banducci Challenge Grant.
Please help the NEC today!

They need donations now.
Some ringing endorsements attached to the TS article.
The members probably thought we would all be dead from global warming ny now anyway. I wonder if Chesbro can fix the NEC like he has fixed the State of California.
why is it that the TS can have 2 consecutive stories about the NEC haveing troubles, but can’t have anything on the lost jobs of people who actually contribute to the economy. These hippies just drain the economy by taking grants and not doing much for us as a community. Ehy is that TS. once again you show why the EUreka Reporter was a better option that your crappy paper.
The nec wonders why they’re in a financial hole? You can’t run a legitemate environmental organization by just pandering to the “boutique enviromentalists” . The nec turned it’s back on all of their long time supporters that are the back to the landers. They demonized us as polluters. Just look at their last news letter and it’s in black and white.
I didn’t leave the nec, the nec left me and my family.
I, my family and many many friends who are rural homesteaders feel betrayed by the nec and epic. This is the real reason they are in a financial hole………homesteading environmentalists have withdrawn their support.
One of these days environmentalists will figure out that their movement has to be more than a growing list of prohibitions and fashionable don’ts. They can’t always simply negate. They must assert. The NEC more than any other organization except maybe EPIC, which makes a tidy living out of obsessively suing people, has no message except thou shalt not. The organization’s demise is darwinian. Good riddance. Maybe something meaningful and inclusive will grow in its place.
Feel the love!
