G.O. 094 - Chasing Water With EC Moe

When not dressed as a cow for the Butter and Eggs Parade, a young EC spent her time hiking, swimming, and camping. Serendipitous moments in her adulthood introduced her to new passions: caving, canyoneering, and diving. She and a sick Jason met one morning to discuss her experiences in the outdoors, her work as a water quality scientist for Heal the Bay, and her love for water (but not oceans).
