Watershed U. Santa Clara River
The Santa Clara River is one of the longest, most natural, and fastest changing rivers in Southern California. From its headwaters in the San Gabriel, Topatopa, Sierra Pelona, and Santa Susanna mountains, to its estuary between Ventura and Oxnard, the river flows through forests, farmlands and cities, changing from a wild and scenic river to an urban parkway. In the past few years, it's been affected by dramatic fires, floods and oils spills. Communities have grown and developed, and new parks and conservation areas have been created.
Watershed U. - Santa Clara River was held in October and November 2005. Professionals, community leaders, landowners, environmentalists, and interested citizens came together to learn you learn what you need to know to live, work, and play in the watershed. The course covered the history, geography, and setting of the river, and gave an in-depth education about water supply and water quality; ecology; agriculture, development, and mineral resources; flooding and fire; and watershed and land use planning.
