How much do you know about water in California?  What are the changes we can expect from climate change?  What are the options for conservation and recycling?  Do we know enough about dams and groundwater, desalination and pipelines?

Are we doing what we really need to do?

Join us for a conversation with Ray Hiemstra, Associate Director of Programs at Orange County Coastkeeper.

Driving directions to the Duck Club

From Jamboree, go south on Michelson.

  • Pass the old entrance and continue to Harvard.
  • Turn right on Harvard.
  • At University Drive turn right again.
  • At Campus, turn right and stay in the far right lane, which leads to the right turn to the Duck Club.

From Culver, pass Michelson and continue on to University.

  • Turn right and continue to Campus Drive.
  • Here’s the tricky part: When leaving, it’s right turn only onto Campus.
  • Take Campus directly north to Jamboree for access to the 405.
  • Along the way, Carlson cuts across to Michelson for an easy return to Culver and vicinity.
