Visioning Southern California Watersheds Through Time
Date: 12/02/09 6:30 pm - 12/02/09 8:30 pm
Location: Southern California Coastal Water Research Project, 3535 Harbor Blvd., Suite 110, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

COSEE West announces the first public lecture & K-12 educators’ workshop of the 2009-2010 series, featuring Dr. Eric Stein, Principal Scientist, Southern California Coastal Water Research Project. Eric will discuss the transformation of southern California watershed from a state of natural wildlands to an urban and suburban landscape. Eric will reveal how the degradation to our streams and the filling in of our wetlands has affected their “natural condition” by presenting an historical perspective of these systems. We will learn about a renewed appreciation of the ecological and social value of healthy natural resources and a vision for what we want our watersheds to be in the future. Eric will discuss how contemporary decisions of land use practices on our streams and wetlands have an effect on the potential recovery of the watersheds in which we live.
