Water is essential to all existence on our planet

and it is part of a complex and extensive man-made system

Growing up in Los Angeles, I never really thought twice about water. It was always there when I wanted it … bottled, or in the sink, or in the yard. I didn’t know the water I drank was traveling thousands of miles to get to me, or even that there was a finite amount of it. It took a journey all the way to Kenya for me to understand what water scarcity was and how it felt to have a genuine reverence for this life source.

I carried my love for water to University of California, Davis, to study it and in June 2013 I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Hydrology. I have interned for various conservation agencies and organizations including the Delta Stewardship Council, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy, and Tidal Influence. I returned to LA and spent a year working as a environmental sampling technician. Currently, I volunteer with Los Angeles Waterkeeper to sample stormwater while continuing to pursue making music.

California’s Changing Snowpack

By Mollie Ogaz As a native Californian, the Sierra Nevada mountain range has long been a subject of awe and appreciation for me. Its granitic peaks, formed over millions of years by volcanic intrusions, uplift, and glacial erosion, are a unifying feature in a state so large and diverse. Forming the eastern edge of California’s […]

Forward Thinking

A drought is not a one time event. It has lasting effects and is typically a consequence of many events and a build-up of weather averages over a period of time. Often, the significant effects of a drought will not be felt until years after it “begins.” Here is an info graphic that sheds some […]
