Ever wonder what you can do in Comal County about flooding, carbon in the air, and climate change?

Deborah “Debbie” Reid, technical director of the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance, discusses “Floods, Carbon, Climate – Oh My!” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11 at the Comal County Conservation Alliance’s (CCCA)’s virtual monthly meeting.

She’ll discuss how conserving land in a watershed can reduce downstream flooding and capture carbon from the atmosphere, helping avert the worst consequences of climate change, CCCA said.

“Healthy soils in parks, open spaces, and undisturbed natural areas can hold vast amounts of water and capture a remarkable amount of atmospheric carbon, just two of the many public benefits of keeping land in its healthy natural state,” said Mary Morga with CCCA.
