The RWA Watershed Wisdom Councils Sessions are a space for individuals and groups to check in on their watershed, organize their efforts, meet others working to regenerate their Watersheds to see what everyone is progressing and help with advice and support for the Water Stewards working their local water projects.

Elizabeth Dougherty, whose organization, WhollyH2O has helped neighborhoods tell their stories of Water in their local areas, will speak about how you can learn to tell your own watershed story to catalyze dynamic, informed connections between people and their watersheds that yield proactive and appropriate water management through conservation and reuse.

Elizabeth Herald, the founder of the Watershed Wisdom Council Concept and the WaterUnity Networks, will speak on how you can form a Watershed Wisdom Council in your own watershed. The Watershed Wisdom Councils Concept (WWCC) is an emerging whole systems blueprint for creating a new paradigm human organizational system for returning our species to a balanced, revitalized Planetary Water Cycle.

In the Regenerative Water Alliance meeting last month we looked at how to hydrate the land to prevent fires. We will look at how to apply some of these fire prevention methods to our local watersheds, and how you can organize your local watershed council around increasing groundwater and soil hydration, which both lower wildfire risk.

Here is a list of DIY projects your neighbors in your watershed can help each other implement, that simultaneously helps reduce wildfire risk, reduce flooding issues, replenishes groundwater, and helps increase the small water cycle:

  1. swales
  2. check dams
  3. terraces
  4. compost tea (to improve soils ability to absorb water)
  5. mycelial compost tea
  6. appropriate plants depending on ecological succession stage to help improve soil quality
  7. Hugelkultur

The Regenerative Water Alliance is activating a global network of watershed communities and water practitioners. By working to promote revitalizing Water Cycle solutions to the climate crises.
