NCUWC welcomes Representative Karin Power and Storyteller Will Hornyak as the evening's speakers!

Rep. Power and her wife live in Milwaukie with their baby, and two rescue dogs. In her other job, Rep. Power is Associate General Counsel for The Freshwater Trust. She is a graduate of Lewis & Clark Law School. Rep. Power is committed to progress for our environment, for stronger communities and better schools, and for equity and equality. She puts her years of environmental law experience to work by advocating for cleaner water and air in our communities, and protecting Oregon's strong environmental heritage. 

A soulful storyteller, creative teacher and dynamic performer, Will Hornyak weaves world myths, local tall tales and original creations into unique, well-crafted and engaging performances, workshops and keynotes. A life-long traveler he has worked as a newspaperman in South America, a fisherman in Alaska, a carpenter, farm hand and university instructor. Stories, poems and songs of work and labor find common ground with Irish myths, Mexican fables, Grimm’s fairytales and Oregon tall tales in Will’s highly imaginative performances. Will teaches storytelling in professional communication at Marylhurst Univ. in Portland, Oregon and performs throughout the United States.

Water that washes from yards, streets and parking lots often flows directly into our waterways, which is detrimental to wildlife, including Threatened and Endangered salmon species. Actions we take as a community and as individuals can decrease this impact. This stormwater science talk is an opportunity to learn how we can take action together.

Have you ever asked yourself:

  • How does water runoff from streets, yards and parking lots connect to natural water systems, like creeks?
  • Who manages this stormwater?
  • What impacts does stormwater have on water quality and habitat value?
  • What can you do about it?

If so, join us for Rain in the Urban Jungle! We will have local water experts talking about green infrastructure like bioswales, and what we can do at home to prevent runoff into our precious streams in the Pacific Northwest. RSVP HERE

This special Science Talk is a partnership with Water Environment Services, Johnson Creek Watershed Council, and the North Clackamas Urban Watersheds Council.

Let’s talk about science!

Come hungry and thirsty-our gracious hosts at Libbie’s Restaurant have a full bar and yummy comfort food which you can check out HERE. There is ample parking available at Libbie’s in their lot just south of the front entrance. Street parking is also available, should this lot fill up. Taking public transit? We’ll be right off of the MAX Orange line!

Kids and families welcome!

RSVP REQUIRED for this event!
