"Freshwater Crisis: A Global Problem with Backyard Solutions"
Fresh water has become the most precious natural resource on the planet. All life in our watersheds depend on it and it is a basic ingredient fueling the economic structure of most nations. However, the quantity and quality of fresh water has been compromised on a regional to global scale causing what can be called a freshwater crisis. This lecture outlines the extent of that crisis but also offers hope in resolving it by merging science, education, and restoration. It is proposed that such a merger can be effective at all scales but is especially powerful if applied in our own backyard.
