California’s upcoming water bond measure will do more than meets the eye

Highlights and Sticky Notes:California’s climate is known for its cycles of prolonged dry conditions followed by intense rain and snow. Last winter, we saw an extreme example of this as we swung from one of the worst droughts in the state’s history to record precipitation in a few months.It’s important to remember that, even with all the precipitation last winter, water scarcity still threatens sensitive ecosystems across the state.One thing is clear – California faces serious funding gaps when it comes to water, parks and ecosystems.Tags: no_tagby: ndcarter
