Heather Cooley of the Pacific Institute to Attend 2019 Santa Ana River Watershed Conference

On Friday March 29th, Pacific Institute Director of Research Heather Cooley and several Pacific Institute researchers will attend the 2019 Santa Ana Watershed Conference, “Moving Forward Together: From Planning to Action Across the Watershed.” The day-long conference in Fullerton, California will connect local water managers and stakeholders to discuss how, through powerful partnerships and integrated planning, the region is finding resilient solutions to improve the quality and reliability of the local water supply in the watershed.

The conference provides a unique platform for the Pacific Institute to talk about the current collaboration between the Pacific Institute, California Forward, the CEO Water Mandate, and the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority. A recent output of this collaboration is the report “Sustainable Landscapes on Commercial and Industrial Properties in the Santa Ana River Watershed.” At the conference, Pacific Institute staff will discuss this report and the related interactive mapping tool that allows users to explore the potential benefits of sustainable landscaping practices across the Santa Ana River Watershed. 

The event will take place on Friday, March 29th, from 8:30 AM until 4:00 PM PDT, at Cal State Fullerton; Titan Student Union, Portola Pavilions; 800 North State College Blvd.; Fullerton, California.
