Waterscape: Watersheds and Human Dependency

November 10, 2021
4:00 — 5:30 pm

The 2021 drought brings added urgency to the issues of the safety and availability of water in California. While the drought has us all focused on our drinking water, this event challenges us to take in the bigger picture of water and its roles in the ecosystems of California.

We’re pleased to welcome:

  • Obi Kaufmann, who will talk about water in the context of biodiversity in the California landscape
  • Jay Lund will talk about what communities can do — and have done elsewhere in the world — to become more resilient to drought.
  • Cynthia Koehler, Marin Municipal Water District, who will talk more specifically about how MMWD manages the Marin watershed;

We look forward to having you join us for an event that will help you to understand California’s water issues in a way that encompasses not just the water needs of people but of other species as well. As always, we will also be offering up ideas for how you can help to make a difference on these crucial issues.
