Turn on your faucet and clean water pours out. Pull the drain plug and dirty water disappears. Professor David Sedlak, author of the new book, “Water 4.0″, outlines the three revolutions that brought us this undervalued wonder, and the re-invention needed to give the Bay Area – and civilization – safe, drought-proof water systems friendly to nature and vibrant to urban life.

Kathleen M. Wong and Ariel Rubisso Okamoto, authors of Natural History of San Francisco Bay (UC Press 2011), will explore how our local communities, scientists,
governments, and ordinary people are striving to ensure that San Francisco Bay and its watershed remain healthy for both people and wildlife – from research to restoring wetlands to resolving conflicts.
November 11, 2014
The Bay hosts an ever-changing array of 30 different species of shorebirds, living by the seasons and tides, moving and feeding in patterns that reflect their physical attributes. Meet these fascinating, varied, and beautiful neighbors – some stay-at-home, some from half a world away – in a talk by Bay Area birding teacher and leader Rust
y Scalf. Rusty also will discuss how the Bay’s shorebird populations are likely to have changed through the past, how they seem to be changing now, and what the future may hold.
