At MBCA's 48th Annual Meeting on Saturday, January 28, members and supporters of MBCA heard a brief summary of MBCA's 2016 accomplishments and challenges, followed by an inspiring story of teaching high school students to appreciate the natural environment, ending with an information-rich panel presentation by local water officials.
Introduced by Director Ruth Rieman, Yucca Valley High School science teacher Cindy Zacks then shared stories from her 17 years of helping students understand and appreciate the natural world, through ecology classes and outings and the development of a garden on the school property.
Stacy Moore, editor of the Hi Desert Star, served as moderator for presentations and a question-and-answer session by four water district representatives. The sharing of information about issues, challenges, and solutions among the districts was appreciated by the representatives as well as the audience.
