On this virtual tour, we travel along trails past three lakes and see the wildlife in Joseph D. Grant County Park. Along the way, we learn about the San Felipe Restoration Project managed by Valley Water and its importance as a habitat for endangered and other wildlife. This program is in partnership with Valley Water. Photo by Thomson200, CC0, via Wikimedia Commons.
In this workshop, you will learn about water as a global scarce, nonrenewable resource, the critical role it plays in the sustainability of our planet and the impending national water crisis. Our clean water crisis goes far beyond Flint. Last year 30 million Americans lived in areas where water systems violated safety rules and the threats from growing populations, pollution and global warming will only make things worse. An understanding of the current global state of the water crisis will leave you with the awareness and sense of urgency that this issue deserves. Image by rony michaud from Pixabay.
Join us for a day on the coast exploring tidepools, beaches and cliffs to see sea stars, anemones, harbor seals, shorebirds and colorful foliage with a picnic lunch by an historic ranch. We end the day with hand-crafted hot chocolate and some time to stroll in downtown Santa Cruz. Photo by Grey3K - Own Work, CC BY 3.0
