Inspiring Innovation in Watershed Protection: From Grassroots to Policy to Practice

This year's lecture will feature keynote speaker Martha Davis, who for years led the Mono Lake Committee efforts to restore Mono Lake and now serves as the Executive Manager of Policy Development at the Inland Empire Utilities Agency.  

Following the keynote speaker, there will be a panel consisting of Martha Davis (Inland Empire Utility Agency), Art Ludwig (Oasis Design), George Johnson (City of Santa Barbara Creeks Division) and Cora Kammeyer (Environmental Studies, Class of 2015 and Bren Masters Candidate).

The annual free lecture and community gathering is supported by the Darcy Aston Memorial Lecture Series Fund in connection with UC Santa Barbara and was created in honor of Darcy Aston (Environmental Studies, Class of 1981).  The lecture series is intended to engage the general public, local water experts, students and faculty in a dialogue about local water issues and inspire participation in finding solutions to our local challenges. The lectures focus on innovative approaches to the complex issues of water supply and water quality and watershed protection.
