Fish Bowl Exchange 345pm  Location: Main Tent

A fish bowl is a facilitated dialog that invites spokespeople from participating interest groups to share what they heard throughout the day, make proposals for collective action, and determine feasible next steps.  They are the inside of the "fishbowl".  The rest of the participants are on the outside, observing and offering comments when appropriate.  It is an excellent way to achieve consensus with a large group in a short amount of time. 

Closing  4:45pm     Location: Main Tent  

Loren BirdRattler will summarize the day and help us gain a closing perspective on the importance of our work

Final words, Temet Aguilar, Pauma Tribral Chairman
