The original Proposition 17 letter and petition

Status: Live River
By: Rob Caughlin, Friends of the River
Date: 1974

This the original letter crafted by Rob Caughlan asking people to sign and circulate the Proposition 17 petition to save the Stanislaus River. Over 100,000 people participated in the petition campaign which gathered 387,000 signatures, far more than required.
