Climate Resilience Through Regeneration: Recharge for Farms, Nature, and People

While California is no stranger to the drought and deluge cycle, another wet winter sparks conversations about water security and climate resilience. However, climate resilience isn't just about bouncing back; it's about propelling forward. It's about adapting, innovating, and uniting to confront climate challenges head-on and build a stronger, more sustainable California. 


Sustainable Conservation announces the spring 2024 webinar series, Climate Resilience Through Regeneration. From revitalizing soil health to restoring habitats, and from effective flood management to replenishing groundwater, the series will explore actionable strategies for climate resilience that promise to reshape and regenerate our communities and ecosystems. 
The series will kick off on Wednesday, April 24 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM with a panel on the many benefits of groundwater recharge and how we can boost ecosystem recovery and protect community drinking water. Join California water experts to explore what the recent historic wet years mean for groundwater and how multi-benefit recharge is vital for building a thriving and climate-resilient California. Registration here.
