Protecting Jacob's Well and the Springs of the Wimberley Valley

How Being Social Can Combat Water Scarcity

by  John Whear BS ME 

The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association and Jacobs Well Natural Area are developing a workshop for community based rainwater harvesting and seeks participants for a focus group.

Recent studies have shown how old social habits can provide communities with new sources of water in arid environments. We will be focusing on ancient rainwater social habits from pre-colonial India and rainwater harvesting methods pioneered at the Bamberger Ranch.

We need 16 to 32 volunteers for a Common Pool Resource focus group. Feedback from this group will help develop simple games to illustrate and teach these simple social habits.

A free lunch will be provided with RSVP by Monday, September 10th.
Event Information:
Saturday September 15th 11:00am till 1:30pm
at Camp Jacob 221 Woodacre Drive, Wimberley, Texas 78676
