Emma Marris — Environmental Writer
Wednesday, October 10, 6:30pm
Wille Hall, Coats Campus Center, COCC Bend
Join COCC and Bend Art Center as Emma Marris talks about the future of fresh water. She will cover global and local challenges as increasing populations struggle to share a finite amount of water. She’ll delve into one of the biggest challenges for those who want to talk about freshwater: much of it is hidden. Come to gain an understanding of the state of freshwater in the Deschutes and Klamath basins and around the world, and leave with a set of concrete actions to take and new ways to visualize the Earth’s hidden water.
Tickets: $10. Get your tickets here.
Free student tickets will be available at Coats Campus Center info desk (COCC) and the Student Life Office at OSU-Cascades (Tykeson Hall Room 110).
This presentation complements the exhibit, “Water Tables,” featuring works by Pat Clark on display at Bend Art Center and the COCC’s Barber Library from October 5 – November 25.
