It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here but we can definitely tell by the weather we’ve been having. Even though we have had a lot of rain I think this would be a very informative lecture on water and what we can do to conserve it. Sponsored by “Island Climate Resilience”.

Do we have enough water?
What happens if we have a multi-year drought?
