PROGRAM: Water in the Next 100 Years, with Sharlene Leurig, with Environmental Flows Initiative of Texas Living Waters Project, The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University,

The rivers that flow through our state have always had an important destination: the bays. If they don’t reach the bays, the estuaries cease to function, shutting down the “nurseries” that are home to much of our coastal wildlife. That affects the economy. That affects our way of life. That affects you. Between us, we can ensure that these beautiful rivers always reach their destination.

Sharlene holds a Master in City Planning, Environmental Policy and Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a BA in Physics and English from Washington University in St. Louis. In her spare time, Sharlene writes about the springs of Texas on her blog Hell’s Oasis. She is an avid swimmer, kayaker, hiker and lover of all things wild.

Consider biking, carpooling, or taking Cap Metro (http://www.capmetro.org/planner) to the meeting. Free parking is available after 6pm on San Jacinto and nearby streets.
