Sedona AZ (February 6, 2013) As Robert Louis Stevenson, novelist, essayist, and poet (1850-1894) once said, “Everybody, sooner or later, sits down to a banquet of consequences.” At the next Speaker Series presentation on Wednesday, February 13, KSB president Tom O’Halleran will explore what we can do to ensure that the Sedona/Verde Valley banquet of water will still be around in 2050 with a talk entitled “Knowledge Flows Into Action: Sustaining Our Watershed Into the Future”. The evening will begin at 5:30 pm, with complimentary offerings of appetizers donated by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano and wine provided by KSB. The presentation will begin at 5:45 pm.
Join Keep Sedona Beautiful members and friends to discover what actions we can take to preserve and protect our groundwater supply from now and into the future. Unless you have surface water rights, such as rights for irrigation, or you harvest rainwater, the water you use for all household and landscape needs comes from groundwater. It is our groundwater that enables us to live in this stunning high-desert environment. Understanding the important role of groundwater empowers everyone to comprehend their interrelationship with this natural resource, its finite supply and the steps necessary to preserve it.
