Lake County PEG Channel's GOAL is to support and promote television along with other multimedia productions, with community driven content, through education and training, facilities and equipment, and production assistance. The public then becomes a stronger, better informed, and a more open community through alternative media.

Lake County PEG Channel encourages the community old and young alike to become involved in local education, government and public broadcasting.

Welcome to The Highlands, LCPTV's new project

Featured video of the month: Know Lake County - Life on the Edge, Biodiversity of the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region a lecture by Victoria Brandon, Sierra Club Redwood Chapter Chair

This is Victoria's summary of her talk given at the Lakeport Library on April 18, 2015.

"Berryessa Snow Mountain is one of the most biologically diverse regions of California. Stretching over 100 miles from blue oak woodlands near Putah Creek and the shores of Lake Berryessa to the sub-alpine habitat of Snow Mountain Wilderness in the Mendocino National Forest to the north, it contains six major habitat types which support animals including osprey, bald and golden eagles, river otters, mountain lions, tule elk, and rare plants found nowhere else on earth.

"360,000 acres of federal public lands in the region have been proposed for permanent protection as a national monument.

"Berryessa Snow Mountain's extraordinary biodiversity stems in part from what is known as the "edge effect": areas where two different habitat types come together tend to support unusually large numbers of species -- and BSM is made up of a complex mosaic of different habitats, so "edges" are everywhere.

"The geological past profoundly affects the biological present, especially plants. Three tectonic plates (North American, Farallon, and Pacific) come together in the region, bringing ocean sediments, igneous, and metamorphic rocks into close conjunction. These include Coast Range Ophiolite, a remnant of ocean crust typically including serpentine rocks, nearly vertical layers of the "Great Valley Sequence," and the Franciscan Complex.

"Berryessa Snow Mountain's botanical diversity arises from variegated geology and landscape forms, significant elevation changes, numerous microclimates, and the presence of large quantities of serpentine rock, which is rich in iron and magnesium and poor in calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. Few common plants can survive there, leaving an opening for specialists to become uniquely adapted to particular niches. Besides an incredible array of rare wildflowers and expanses of oak woodlands, mixed conifer forest, riparian plant communities and native grasslands, the region contains the most southerly occurrence of red fir and the rare McNab and Sargent cypresses.

"Diverse habitat supports diverse wildlife, and linkages & connectivity yield ecological resilience. By providing an essential link between the southern Coast Range, eastern Bay Area and protected areas farther north and west, permanent protection of Berryessa Snow Mountain will improve the chances of at-risk species to move and adapt to climate change, something that is essential to their survival in the future.

"The wonders of Berryessa Snow Mountain deserve permanent protection as a National Monument and as a legacy for our children and grandchildren.
