Hydro Cahooting · Cooperating with Water


“It’s time to take our fire fears and connect that with our water woes!” – Brock Dolman

Caroline welcomes “Fluid Druid” Water Wizard Brock Dolman, for auspicious hydro cahooting: that we ally with Beavers.

To cooperate to cooperate, good for the whole Community the human relationships become more egalitarian…. Even our rogue species learns manners. Neptune, Mercury, exactly aligned (on Brock’s Moon!)… So Water would like to speak with us… through its dedicated ally…

The California deluge… The Sky Rivers stalling…losing the capacity for undulating flow…

So, let’s undulate….
To protect water become more like water… Tao Teh Ching

Brock Dolman co-founded (in 1994) the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center where he co-directs the WATER Institute. A wildlife biologist and watershed ecologist, he has been actively promoting “Bringing Back Beaver in California” since the early 2000s. He was given the Salmonid Restoration Federation’s coveted Golden Pipe Award in 2012: “…for his leading role as a proponent of “working with beavers” to restore native habitat.
