February 12, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us to learn about our most important natural resource – WATER!
Our speaker: Tina Donnelly
California is unique and arguably infamous for many reasons. Water in California is beginning to grab the attention it deserved long ago as the once waterlogged landscape is unrecognizable farmlands, leveed deltas, and expanded deserts. How did California’s water go unnoticed for so long only to become a hot topic?
This talk will overview the ties between California’s culture and how it revolves around water & its plants and how the relationship has evolved over the past couple hundred years. Can California balance the needs of the citizens, the landscape, and the economy? This question may not be answered in this talk but insights and realistic perspectives will be given and discussed that may help open a productive dialogue.
