Each year, UMD and LSC collaborate to offer events that Celebrate World Water Day. This year, our discussion will focus on the importance of access to local water resources, and the role that access plays in fostering appreciation and respect for those places. Watch Rock the Boat, learn what “navigable water” means, eat some popcorn, and help us build our annual bottle chain and plastics display. First 15 people to bring us an empty plastic bottle for our chain gets a FREE “Superior” aluminum bottle! Check out the press release for more info on ours, and UMD’s events. Most events are free and open to the public!
When satirical writer and avid kayaker George Wolfe organizes a boating expedition down the entire 52 miles of the notorious Los Angeles River, he and his motley crew become entangled in a legal controversy of national proportions. With startling images of the LA River, insightful interviews and a quirky sense of humor, Rock the Boat looks at the challenges society faces in providing clean water to urban populations, and delivers a bright alternative to the current spate of doomsday docs.
