UC ANR Water Webinar Series


Join us for the UC ANR Water Webinar series! This seminar series, organized by the Water Program Team, led by Ellen Bruno and Safeeq Khan, provides a virtual platform to get to know water-interested colleagues inside and outside the university, share ideas, build networks, and learn about ongoing and upcoming issues and challenges in California water.

The series is held the fourth Monday of the month from 12-1pm PT over Zoom -- logistics at the bottom of the page. All talks from previous seasons can be viewed at the links below.
