Bethany Rader-Ruelas

Region: Sac & Sierra

Project(s): Drought Resilience for Small and Disadvantaged Communities Email: braderruelas@civicspark.lgc.org Fellow Bio:

I’m a water wonk with a passion for ensuring reliable access to this most vital resource to all people. I have bachelors’ degrees in environmental studies and economics. I believe that environmental sustainability has its feet firmly grounded in economics, and I can’t wait to use my background to address supply and demand issues in the natural resources arena. I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to work with the Dept of Water Resources on drought resilience issues for small and disadvantaged communities, and I can’t wait to learn more about how to better help these communities ensure access to water in the coming times of scarcity and uncertainty.
