Mark your calendars for Blue42 2011: June 3, 2011

Pat Fuscoe, Chairman, Miocean Foundation

May 12, 2012

Dear Friends of Miocean,

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful Orange County coastline we call home. Thank you for helping us secure its future.

This spring we will not be having our traditional "Blue42" gala at the St. Regis Resort. Although it always sells out as a great party, our Board decision to focus our key resources on Miocean's mission at this critical time is one we trust you will embrace.

We are proud to continue serving the coastal community by installing a major runoff treatment wetland system in Buck Gully at Little Corona Beach this year that will stop the pollution at the County's most popular tide pool environment.

We also are continuing to build the 17-acre treatment wetland alongside the Santa Ana River Jetty which cleans water while educating visitors and enhancing the park environment. Additionally, we are continuing to support the Ocean Institute's Watershed Education Program, as well as investigating two new County projects - one in San Clemente and another at Aliso Creek.

Finally, we plan to have a smaller, but equally fun, "thank you" event this fall at the Ocean Institute. We began our mission there ten years ago and will return for this anniversary milestone. We hope you will join us, so watch for the invitation while you enjoy a great summer in the clean ocean water!

Best Regards,

Pat Fuscoe
