Community Science Connecting People with their Watersheds.
Community Science, also known as Citizen Science, is taking the scientific research and public education arenas by storm. What does this new form of scientific inquiry have to offer to watershed research? What kinds of deep connections are made by the general public engaging in projects like ongoing whale or owl monitoring, a single day BioBlitz, water quality monitoring for microplastics? Come and learn more with Wholly H2O’s director Dr. Elizabeth Dougherty.
Dr. Elizabeth Dougherty is determined to make innovative approaches to localizing water sustainability all the rage in California. Since receiving her PhD in Ethnography from the University of Pennsylvania in 2003, Elizabeth has delved into a wide range of work in energy efficiency, fair trade, permaculture, agroecology, and water conservation and reuse. In 2009, seeing a need for centralizing information about the new field of Green Infrastructure, Elizabeth founded the watershed education nonprofit, Wholly H2O.
