A Proposal for Rediscovering Our Local Watershed

SPG has proposed that the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History have a display about how the PG watershed can supply more water than is now available, develop a model rain catchment system to demostrate what can be easily done, plus more.

As we have begun gathering material for the Museum display we have found many links and much information that relates to water and how we use it. Look here at some to that material. (This is just a start, more is coming.)

Here is the Report.
