Listen to water experts Christy Muse, Executive Director, Hill Country Alliance (HCA), and Lyn Clancy, Senior Water Policy Advisor at the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), discuss the severe drought gripping Central Texas/Hill Country that shows little sign of relenting in 2014 and its environmental implications.

Lunch will be provided.
