Drop by Drop: The Impact of Small Changes with Jessica Woods – Williamson County Chapter Meeting, March 14

March 14 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Join NPSOT-Williamson County on Thursday, March 14, 2024, when our featured topic will be “Drop by Drop: The Impact of Small Changes” with Jessica Woods, City of Round Rock Water Conservation Coordinator.  Free and open to the public. The meeting begins at 7:00 PM.  Our guest speaker’s presentation begins after a short business meeting.

About our topic: During warm weather, a large amount water is used outdoors on lawns and landscapes and much of it is wasted. With Central Texas still experiencing drought and low lake levels, we want to prevent water waste. This presentation will cover the current drought conditions and several steps homeowners can do to effectively use water. Conservation programs the City of Round Rock offers will also be covered.

About our speaker: Jessica Woods has worked as the City of Round Rock’s Water Conservation Program Coordinator since 2009. She manages all aspects of the growing city’s conservation program, drought outreach, and education efforts on a tight budget. Jessica earned a Master’s of Applied Geography degree from Southwest Texas State University. She’s the Texas Section AWWA Conservation and Reuse Division Chair and a certified Master Naturalist. She enjoys spending time outdoors, attempting to garden, and lounging around water with a good book and cold drink!

NOTE: this month’s in-person location is the Round Rock Public Library, 200 E Liberty Ave, Round Rock, TX 78664
