Boom Editor Jon Christensen is moderating a series of discussions on water issues at the Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles this summer. Just Add Water: The Discussions, presented in conjunction with the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and Boom: A Journal of California, focuses on the most important water issues facing Los Angeles today, and how the city will adapt to water shortages in the future.

Covering topics ranging from the L.A. river to climate change, the series explores possibilities for living in harmony with the region’s natural resources. Don’t miss this Thursday’s discussion (July 24th) on the subject, “Chinatown, Revisited.”
