Do Our Rivers Have A Chance?

River ecosystems have become some of the most endan­gered places on Earth. Growing human populations, as well as agriculture and industry, are all placing increasing demands on limited water supplies while climate change is exacerbating drought and reducing snow fall conditions. Steve Fleischli, Director and of the Water Program at the NRDC, and hydrologist Dennis Lettenmaier, UCLA Professor of Geography, will speak on the threats to the world’s rivers and what we can do to protect them.
