Update: 3/12/20. Due to concerns around the COVID-19 virus, and especially protecting our elders, we are postponing the 2020 Tribal Riparian Workshop as this is the safest course of action. We plan to reschedule for the fall or early winter based on availability.
Pala’s second annual riparian workshop was a resounding success!
Spring is here, signaling for most people that it’s time to start your gardens. As California enters its fourth straight year of severe drought, we should all think about landscaping with low water use plants, instead of water-hogs (like grass & tropical plants).
California is facing one of the worst drought seasons in recorded history, and with climate change and all of our thirsty lawns, it is only going to get worse. On January 17th, 2014, Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought state of emergency for the entire state, and requested that everyone voluntarily reduce their water consumption by 20 percent. Last year was the driest year ever recorded for the San Diego area, and 2014 is looking to follow this record, in spite of our recent rain storm.
