Have you been thinking about harvesting rainwater for irrigating your garden, or even simply reducing your "blue footprint" and using H20 more sustainably? Then join us in welcoming local visionary, Brock Dolman! Through this presentation Brock will highlights way in which to integrate raingardens, swales, rainbarrels, cisterns, ponds and other simple designs into the landscapes of our homes, gardens and neighborhoods. With the impending drought, these techniques can also help us reduce our pressure on municipal water supplies, reduce our carbon footprint, reduce our impact on streams and rivers that are home to endangered salmon in Marin County, and honor water as the precious resource that it truly is. Two *NEW* local initiatives led by SPAWN and Sustainable Fairfax to help our communities design, fund and build rainwater harvesting projects will also be highlighted. BROCK DOLMAN is the Director of OAEC's WATER Institute. He is also the director of OAEC's Permaculture Program, he co-directs the Wildlands Biodiversity Program and he co-manages the Center's biodiversity collection, orchards and 70 acres of wildlands. Living up to his specialized generalist nature, and rekindling the dwindling art of the peripatetic natural historian, his experience ranges from the study of wildlife biology, native California botany and watershed ecology, to the practice of habitat restoration, education about regenerative human settlement design, ethno-ecology, and ecological literacy activism towards societal transformation.
