The Creation Care Team invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2018 is Stewardship.

Stewardship of Water
Sunday, February 25 6:00 p.m.
At the February web meeting, we welcome Bruce Bodson, President/Executive Director of Lower Brazos Riverwatch, who will address Stewardship of Water.  Water is a uniquely versatile medium, functioning as a vital resource, a habitat, a recreation venue, and a waste conveyance. As we have often seen in Houston, it is also a destructive force of nature. Stewardship of water entails balancing these functions and our management of the hazard in a manner that allows for protection of the resource, for all the human benefits to be obtained, and still leave a reasonably unimpaired habitat for other species. Here in Houston, the Bayou City, we are blessed with an abundance of waters, but we struggle with maintaining the balance of uses that allows us to enjoy this abundance without causing irreparable harm to the resource. This presentation will examine the resources we have, and consider the effects of the ever growing demand placed on them. It will also look at some examples of local programs that strive to bring balance to our consumption and regulation of the resource. After Bruce’s talk, there will be time for Q&A. Please register for this talk, and you will receive an invitation to the web meeting. Contact Lisa Brenskelle with any questions.
