Honoring Felicia Marcus | A Quarter Century of Connecting the Drops
CWH is celebrating 25 years of meaningful work advancing the health and sustainability of our region’s watersheds. At CWH, we work to build consensus and break down silos to affect sound watershed management. Along the way, we cross paths with many exceptional individuals who share this goal and exemplify our founding principles. As we celebrate A Quarter Century of Connecting the Drops, we have chosen to honor two standout watershed champions.
On October 18th, we will honor Felicia Marcus, William C. Landreth Visiting Fellow at Stanford University’s Water in the West Program, for her long, dynamic career making our region more equitable and water-resilient. Throughout her many roles, she has become known as an adept leader of large institutions who promotes progressive policies and greater public engagement. We invite you to learn more about her robust contributions to our region by scrolling through the slideshow above! We also welcome you to visit our 25th anniversary website and join us for a dinner under the stars as we celebrate 25+ years of collaboration toward healthier watersheds and communities. Hope to see you there!
