The Modesto Junior College Civic Engagement Project (CEP) invites the community to a free lecture by Lloyd Carter on Water in the Central Valley on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in Forum 110 on MJC’s East Campus, 435 College Ave. The event is part of the CEP Fall Film and Lecture Series. Campus parking is available for $2 in student parking lots.
Lloyd Carter has worked for decades as a reporter specializing in water issues. He has written for United Press International and The Fresno Bee, and he has also taught water law at San Joaquin College of Law. Currently he serves as president of the California Save Our Streams Council and hosts a monthly radio show on environmental issues.
Carter claims that Central Valley industrial agriculture, while enriching some people, has ruined air quality, killed rivers, polluted drinking water aquifers, nearly annihilated the Delta, and has destroyed one of Mother Nature's rarest creations, an inland desert marsh.
Following the lecture there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
