FOLLOW THE DROP: A HYDRO-SOCIAL TOUR OF CALIFORNIA H20
Sunday, September 10th, 10AM to 1PM
As Californians, we interact with water at multiple points in the hydrologic cycle as it changes from gas, to liquid to solid; socked in by Pacific fog, drinking water from Hetch Hetchy, playing in the Sierra’s snow. Pondering the hydrosocial cycle of water raises questions like: Who owns the rain? How is fog managed? Where does a river become the sea? Join us on a river cruise up into the Carquinez Strait where we shall discuss these questions and more as we cruise through several different water zones.
