Founder of Texas Drought Project to Speak at Democratic Women’s Club
Wednesday, August 4, 2010 • Posted August 3, 2010

The August 12 meeting of the Kendall County Area Democratic Women (KCADW) will feature Alyssa Burgin, founder and director of the Texas Drought Project. The meeting starts at 10am and will be held at Kronkosky Place, 17 Old San Antonio Road, in Boerne. Ms. Burgin will discuss both the growing risk of severe water shortages in Texas as well as the choices Texans face as this risk intensifies over the coming years and decades.

Alyssa Burgin is a 5th generation Texan who has been active in both social and political campaigns for most of her adult life. As director of the Texas Drought Project, Burgin seeks to educate citizens across the state about water conservation efforts in the face of significant water shortages due to desertification, a growing population, and a warming climate. It should be a very interesting and educational program!

The program is open to everyone, without regard to political affiliation. KCADW holds monthly meetings in the Boerne area on the second Thursday of every month. Contact Cindy at 210-698-5009 for more information, or go online to
