"Cycle of Insanity: The Real Story of Water" - May 26
THINKING LIKE A WATERSHED
Thinking like a watershed is what Brock Dolman of the WATER Institute would like all of us to start doing. On May 26 he’ll be in Ojai to comment on a 20-minute documentary produced by the Surfrider Foundation called Cycle of Insanity: The Real Story of Water and speak on water issues. Dolman, who is cofounder of the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, is a wildlife biologist and a permaculture, erosion control and watershed restoration consultant. He maintains that we’re not in a water crisis; it’s our water-management system that is in crisis. This affects how much water we have in our reservoirs, storage tanks, and groundwater basins. Decision makers have focused on short-term solutions to long-term watershed problems. Members of the audience will receive a free copy of Dolman’s booklet Basins of Relations: A Citizen’s Guide to Protecting and Restoring Our Watersheds.
The May 26 presentation (click to download a pdf flyer) will take place at the Chaparral High School Auditorium, 414 E. Ojai Avenue in Ojai, at 7 P.M. A $5 suggested entry donation will include a copy of the Basins of Relations
