A Presentation By Debra Kiefel
When you are out and about in places such as restaurants, book stores, and other public places where you may see little children, do you ever wonder what their future will be like when they are older? If you have children or grandchildren are you concerned about what life has in store for them? Will they inherit a planet that is livable, with beautiful forests and majestic oceans? With clean land, water, and air? Or will they live tortured lives due to all of the accumulated pollution that has been created? To explore this big topic, the Dec 8, 2016, presentation will include an overview of the history of human pollution which reaches back thousands of years, a brief look at human population growth, an overview of the pollution we create today, and one of the next important steps that we must all take.
To find out what this next step is, please join us for this important EGG presentation.

About The Presenter
Debra Kiefel is passionately interested in bringing the natural world back to the Santa Clara Valley in the way of California Native Gardens surrounding most commercial buildings throughout the valley, as well as using California Native plants in residential gardens. Over the years Debra has seen firsthand the increased use of all the “wild nature” parks in the surrounding foothills of the Santa Clara Valley, including the parks along the bay. She strongly feels that people should have access to “wild nature places” within walking distance from where they live, work, and play. People need such places on so many levels to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. Too research the possibility of such a dream coming true for all South Bay residents she is now actively exploring venues as to how such a huge endeavor can be made a reality. With an interest in many areas of the environmental field, after obtaining her Environmental Studies BA degree from SJSU she explored a number of paths including composting, oil recycling, recycling, and construction waste salvage. Over the last few years she was a contractor at eBay where she converted meta data from ticketing systems into reports that management could use for business decisions.
