In the face of an ongoing drought and a diminishing lake, the Ojai community has paid a lot of attention to water recently. Our government, environmental nonprofits, and water management agencies have also been working on the challenge of securing a sustainable water future for our valley. This Ojai Chautauqua will focus on the changes that are currently underway, as well as additional changes that we may need to consider.
