Message from the Interim Director of Extension

Last week I attended the Arizona Food Summit. Secretary Vilsack addressed the group and talked about food security but framed it as nutrition security. The group kept that theme throughout the conference, talking about the importance of ensuring people have access to nutritional food. Thinking of our nutrition programs in Extension, I believe we have been working towards nutrition security through programs for years. I saw many opportunities for Extension to collaborate with food systems throughout the State with our current programming and even more opportunities for Extension to expand into new areas. I left my card with many participants and presented on future food production in the State. I also made sure everyone was aware of their local county Extension offices, so don’t be surprised if you get some calls or emails starting with, “Ed Martin said I should contact you about….”

WRRC Brown Bag Webinar Looking Upstream: An Upper Basin Perspective

Looking Upstream: An Upper Basin Perspective
Tuesday, March 29, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 1:15 p.m. Arizona (1:00 – 2:15 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time)

Moderated by:
Jennifer Gimbel, Interim Director and Senior Water Policy Scholar, Colorado Water Center

Steve Wolff, General Manager, Southwestern Water Conservation District
Jim Lochhead, CEO/Manager, Denver Water

Brought to you by the WRRC and the Colorado Water Center at Colorado State University, this panel will focus on an Upper Basin perspective of current Colorado River issues. The Upper Basin does not have the luxury of pulling water out of reservoirs to supply its water users. Climate change and the prior appropriation system control water uses and naturally limit water use. Panelists will discuss the Upper Basin Drought Contingency Plan and the methods being used to efficiently use water from the Colorado River.
