    SAWDF board member, Andrew Wier is spearheading SAWDF's response to the proposed 2022-2027 Desired Future Conditions, in all five member districts of Groundwater Management Area 12. 

    Andy is also involved in our educational outreach to younger stewards of our water and our land. Thank you, Andy!

    Here is Andy back in October teaching a science class for home-school students, sponsored by Pines & Prairies Land Trust and taught by Lost Pines Master Naturalists. [Andy is a Master Naturalist] 

    Andy reported that this class was all about groundwater. Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District provided the groundwater flow model (thank you to LPGCD!).

     It was a hit with the students and helped them grasp recharge, discharge, groundwater flow, relationship with surface water, and impact on each from pumping.

    SAWDF is seeking to expand its outreach and education programs, along with its advocacy and other support for aquifers, local groundwater-dependent communities, and landowner property rights in their groundwater ~~ please continue your generous donations to enable our grassroots funding component when we apply for matching grants to help finance this important work. Please go to the bottom of this page to donate.
