Sustainability Series

FLC PISO
February 12, 2014

Dr. Peter B. Moyle

Dr. Peter B. Moyle

The community is invited to attend a sustainability lecture this Spring at Folsom Lake College. Dr. Peter B. Moyle, Distinguished Professor of Fish Biology at UC Davis, will give a presentation entitled "Why the Delta Ecosystem has not collapsed: Rise of a novel, ever-changing system" on Wednesday, March 5 from 7-9pm at the El Dorado Center in Placerville in the Community Room (C-102).

In the wake of California's serious drought situation, the California Delta - the vast delta ecosystem fed by the Sacramento River, the San Joaquin River, and their tributaries - remains in the center of California's complex water management issues. D. Moyle will present the big picture about the Delta ecosystem and its fishes, looking at the Delta as a novel and constantly changing ecosystem. The decisions we make today, such as building the tunnels, will result in further changes to this important ecosystem, in ways that we may or may not find desirable.

Don't miss this incredible opportunity to learn about the California Delta ecosystem from Dr. Peter Moyle, who is author/coauthor of 200 scientific papers, and the author of 10 books, including "Inland Fishes of California" and "Fishes: An Enthusiast's Guide."

Admission is free (a daily parking pass can be purchased for $1). A map to the El Dorado Center can be found here.

The event is hosted by Biology Professor Mike Denega and the El Dorado County Career Technical Partnership SB70 Sustainability Team. For more information on this event, please email denegam@flc.losrios.edu.
