coronavirus Covid-19

The recent outbreak of the coronavirus Covid-19 had led to changes: Due to protocols put in place with UC-ANR, the local Fresno office has transitioned to working remotely.  Tentative date to resume "normal" office hours is April 8th.... however that is a "fluid date" and could change any day.  Master Helpline E-mail only at this time.

Thank you for your understanding as we are committed to the health and safety of our volunteers and the community.
