The Pajaro Compass Spring Stakeholder Meeting will focus on watershed resource and restoration partnerships for water quality, flood control, and habitat. There will be a great panel of speakers representing projects in both the upper and lower watershed. As usual, there will be a project pitch session, stakeholder resource table, and training sessions on Pajaro Compass Web Tools. Following a networking lunch (lunch provided), the Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency will lead a tour of the Watsonville Wastewater Plant.
The Pajaro Compass is a voluntary network of landowners and managers, public agencies, conservation organizations, funders, and elected officials with a common interest in maintaining a healthy and productive Pajaro River watershed. The Pajaro River watershed is an area of approximately 1,300 square miles, and includes portions of three mountain ranges (Santa Cruz, Gabilan and Diablo) and four counties (Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey). It includes productive farms and ranches, rich natural areas, and culturally significant places. The Pajaro Compass provides a gateway for participants to learn, connect, and engage in conservation efforts throughout the watershed that promote healthy soils, clean water, productive landscapes, and habitat for native wildlife.
Twice a year, the Pajaro Compass Network convenes a meeting to discuss topics of interest to the network community. The theme of this Spring's meeting is "One Watershed, Many Perspectives: Partnerships in the Pajaro." The meeting will feature networking opportunities, two speaker panels and an optional tour by the Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency of how water gets recycled at the Watsonville Wastewater Plant.
