Home2Headwaters: Where Does Your Water Come From? (CC)

October 29 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


In July 2022, Nina Gordon-Kirsch walked more than 240 miles, tracing the Mokelumne River  – the river that provides tap water to the East Bay. She left her home on Lisjan Ohlone land (so called Oakland) and 33 days later she arrived on Washoe land, at the headwaters of the Mokelumne River in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. 
To hear about her journey and discoveries:
Join us for a conversation with Nina Gordon-Kirsch as she shares her journey discovering the source of our water here in the Bay. We heard about the river that waters Eden at the HHD and how that connects us all. Now learn about the journey of the water that arrives when you turn on your tap at home and appreciate the source of this precious resource.

We’ll also have a Q & A session.
