Western datebook: January on the half shell

Posted on | December 29, 2009 | 1 Comment

With warm wishes for 2010, a few events of note:

January 5: “Borderlands,” a show from the International League of Conservation Photographers studying the impact of the border fence between the US and Mexico, G2 Gallery, Venice, California, through February 7

January 13: Southern California Shells and Beaches from Prehistoric Fossils to Modern Seashore Life
with Scott Rugh,
Collections Manager, Invertebrate Fossils, San Diego Natural History Museum, Casa Romantica Cultural Center Lecture Series, San Clemente

January 13: State of the Bay Report and Conference, Bay Restoration Commission, Stewards of Santa Monica Bay, Los Angeles

January 14: G’day Australia Week 2010 Water Policy Forum, Los Angeles

January 27-29: Climate Change Impacts on Water, policy conference with Jane Lubchenco, Administrator, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Washington DC

Chance of Rain will begin publishing again on January 1st. For Southern Californian readers of the garden elements of this website, please check out a newly loaded calender of Dry Garden Events for January, opening with a January 2nd walk through Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. For a cyber preview of the gardens in winter from Ilsa Setziol at Rambling LA, click here.

This post has been updated. The State of the Bay event has been added thanks to a nudge from LA Creek Freak and the return date has been changed from January 3rd to 1st, when the standard monthly report on Lake Mead elevations “High good, low bad”  will appear on schedule.

    One of the best MWD grants during my tenure was to the Casa Romantica garden – which I visit annually when my family does its San Clemente week-long retreat during summers. Happy new year Emily…. I am hoping for better chances of rain and more visits with you in 2010!
