10 am – 11:30 am
Chilliwack Campus Library

We’re supposed to be living in a rain forest, but lately it feels more like a semi-arid desert. Where’s all the water? UFV Library’s second Science Café will feature speakers who will talk about BC’s drought situation, the Chilliwack aquifer, and the environmental consequences of our changing climate.
