Changing physical conditions upstream are affecting the source of our watersheds at the same time land use and management decisions affect watershed conditions downstream. What does the future hold?

The film Watershed asks these questions– Can we meet the needs of a growing population? Can we find harmony amongst the competing interests of cities, agriculture, industry, recreation, wildlife and indigenous communities with rights to the water? The current uses of Colorado River water (serving 30 million people) prevent it from reaching its outlet at the Gulf of California. Encroaching salt water into groundwater supplies endanger agriculture and wildlife habitat. Watershed highlights personal stories of water users along the river and presents a solution than may serve the needs of all.

Our special guest will be Mike Brent from the Cascade Water Alliance who will join us for a discussion of our regional water supplies, current water supply conditions and plans for the future.  This has been a tough season for those who depend on local rivers.
