Wells to Whales: Protecting our Waters
March 10 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join Sustainable Bainbridge and many partnering organizations for this year’s Association of Bainbridge Communities Environmental Conference on Sunday, March 10, 2018. Registration is $5. This year’s topic is Wells to Whales: Protecting our Waters.
Do you know your “ecological address?” Our “ecological address” is more than just our street, city or town. No matter where we live, each of us inhabits a specific watershed, topography, climate, and other factors such as air and soil chemistry profiles and the biodiversity of flora and fauna. Do you know where your water is sourced and where it goes? What’s an aquifer anyway? When it rains, where does the stormwater go in your neighborhood? And why does all this matter?
We will explore issues of sustainability of water quality and quantity and examine the science, impact and infrastructure in local and global systems. Resident experts will lead breakout groups so you can choose to deep dive on topics that interest you most. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of your ecological address and with more tools and resources on how to manage, strengthen and steward your own unique part of the Puget Sound puzzle.
There are also optional additional, but highly recommended, field trips on Saturday, March 9, to take a deeper dive into some topics including downtown low impact design for stormwater; a tour of the Winslow Wastewater Treatment Plant; and a tour of the
Lynwood Center watershed.
