Come together with experts and your community and share, engage, and build skills around water conservation solutions in the home and community.
The Ecology Center is pleased to host this community forum and skillshare on Saturday, March 30, from 1-4pm with leaders and experts of various aspects of local and regional water sourcing, consumption, and conservation. The afternoon will be highlighted by several keynote speakers, providing short, inspirational TED-style talks with insights from the work they are doing, and what we can do to be a part of good water in Southern California.

Guests will also have the opportunity to take a journey through The Water Shed, an interactive mobile exhibition of The Ecology Center on where water comes from, how we use it, and how we can use it better.
The event is free to the public as all speakers have donated their time to promote water education and use. Two ticket types are available- “free” and “sponsor”. All donations received will fund future water education classes and events at The Ecology Center. For a $15 donation, “sponsor” ticketed guests will leave with a limited edition Hurley tee-shirt or reusable water bottle. We'll see you there!
