About the Event

A watershed is more than a river. In fact, the Los Angeles River Watershed covers more than 800 square miles and 43 cities. Over time, people have interacted with this watershed in many different ways, with resulting changes in one section influencing areas far downstream. Join a discussion on the effects of urban development on the larger ecosystem and options for the future, while considering the current national dialogue about who controls our water. During this panel discussion hear from:

  • Nancy Steele, Director of Conservation, Arroyos and Foothills Conservancy
  • Esther Feldman, President, Community Conservation Solutions
  • Daniel Sharp, Senior Civil Engineer, LA County Public Works

Presented in connection with the offsite tour, Paddle the L.A. River. This series of environmental programs and in-the-field experiences was co-curated with Char Miller, Director of Environmental Analysis, Pomona College. Field trip experiences conducted in collaboration with Los Angeles Conservation Corps and California State Parks.
