Watershed Management Program
The Hoag Center for Real Estate and Finance and Schmid College of Science has partnered with Miocean and Coastkeeper to offer a multi-faceted program on watershed management. Offered twice previously to rave reviews, the 6 week management program featured sessions led by top environmental scientists and policy experts from Chapman University, water board representatives, environmental engineers, and county, city, and community representatives. The program was intended for the local water resources community, developers, consultants, lawyers, civil servants, and everyone interested in the current and future state of the Southland's water resources.
The program began with an overview of California's watershed issues and proceeded to an examination of the science of watersheds, policy and political issues, the regulatory environment, and implications for land development. The program concluded with an included luncheon and offsite field trip. Sessions were held on Chapman's beautiful campus in Orange with refreshments provided.
