PROTECTING & CONSERVING OUR WATER: HOW YOU CAN BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

EVENT DETAILS

In light of growing population and increased frequency of drought punctuated by periods of heavy rain, this talk addresses how the complex interaction between surface water and groundwater combined with human intervention impact both the quantity and quality of water available to citizens of Hays County.

Christine Middleton moved to Wimberley in 2008 and two years later trained as a Master Naturalist. She soon became fascinated by the complex ecological processes underlying water resources in Hays County. Applying research skills developed through 30+ years as a telecommunications analyst, Christine developed teaching materials designed to help our community understand the dynamics of the hydrological cycle. Then, following the Memorial Day flood in 2015, she began leading an effort to assisting riparian landowners in their efforts to manage their land in synergy with the needs of our waterways.

Larry Calvert worked for 38 years in the Chemical Industry. After retiring, he and his wife, Linda, moved to their property on Lone Man Creek. From the time they bought property here in 1997, they have been active and very interested in how to best take care of it. They converted their property from an Ag exemption to a wildlife management exemption when that program began. They became Master Naturalists in 2006, and have been very active in volunteering ever since. Water and water related projects are one of Larry's favorite things to work on.
