Festival Speed

Festival Speed is a Marin County bluegrass combo, Joe Helm on guitar/bass, Bob Hoffman on guitar/bass, Josh Bernstein on banjo, Joe Osborne on fiddle, and Julie Steier on mandolin. We seek to honor the towering progenitors of our genre by playing pure, 190 proof, soulstirrin’, traditional bluegrass. We started as a group of friends who met at local bluegrass jams. Looking to move beyond the jam scene, we formed a band in the spring of 2014 to focus on a set of songs and perfect our sound.»

December 6th – River Otter Ecology Project

River Otter 2015River Otters have returned to the SF Bay Area, and this is good news for our watersheds!  As wetlands and watersheds are restored, and conservation measures are taken, river otters are able to find food and habitat to thrive once more.  The conditions that make watersheds healthy for otters (clean water, functioning ecosystem, plenty of healthy fish), make them healthy for all of us.  The River Otter Ecology project is a volunteer-run citizen science project providing research, education for adults and children, and lots of volunteer opportunities.  Their mission is to support wetland restoration with research, education and restoration partnerships.  Check out their videos and photos of local river otters at, and type on over to their website at
