20150121stateofourwaterCurious about how our water supply is doing in the midst of another dry January? Join our upcoming event, next Thursday, January 29th from 7-9 PM and learn, discuss, and enjoy a night focused on our most precious resource.

The Bay Area State of Our Water Symposium addresses the question: what is the state of our water supply in the Bay Area? What can we do to protect it and ensure that our children and grandchildren will have access to clean water? The Ecology Center, in collaboration with the National Forest Foundation’s Moke Fund, is hosting an interactive symposium featuring short, TED talk style presentations by five local champions of clean water.

Panelists include Elizabeth Dougherty of Wholly H2O, Peter Drekmeier of Tuolomne River Trust, Katherine Evatt of Foothill Conservancy, Andy Katz of EBMUD, and Vance Russell of National Forest Foundation, moderated by Greg Keidan of Moke Fund, plus live music from local songwriter Damond Moodie Music.

All ages are welcome, your questions will help guide the discussion. Event cost is $5-$20 sliding scale, and no one is turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds support the Moke Fund and their work to restore the Mokelumne watershed, the source of 90% of the East Bay’s water. Tickets available online here.
