This conference is hosted by the Washington D.C.-based Land Trust Alliance (LTA), and takes place in a different city around the country each year. Because this year's Rally was just a hop, skip and a jump over the mountains from our home turf, we sent nine people to Sacramento to learn from the country's top conservation experts and [...]

Tackling our Water Woes, One Drop at a Time

Every drop counts. This mantra reverberated through each talk at the Sierra EcoSummit, recently held in Groveland. I went to the EcoSummit curious to hear how the “Westside” was coping with the drought, and to learn what innovative solutions are being proposed. With a lineup of speakers ranging from Dr. Lynn Ingram and Dr. Frances Malamud-Roam - both Earth Science professors at UC Berkeley - to Tom Hicks, a prominent water attorney, [...]
