Message from the Interim Director of Extension 

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting V Bar V, DK Ranch, and our Extension office in Camp Verde. Matt Halldorson and Karen Pizzuto hosted me – thank you very much. Also, thanks to Keith Cannon from V-V and Charlee Boroski from DK Ranch for showing us around. I spent Saturday morning at the Campus Ag. Center at the Southern Arizona Equine Health Symposium. It was a great program, and thanks to Betsy Greene and Ashley Wright, the committee, and the sponsors for putting together a super event. On a more personal note, Garfield has decided to sleep in due to our cold morning temps, while Otis never passes up the opportunity for a good walk.

WRRC Brown Bag Webinar — SILENT RIVER: Adventure Swimming and Stories of Water 

Film Screening & Panel
January 26, 2023 
12:00pm to 1:15pm Arizona Time - via Zoom 

Speakers: Matthew Moseley, CEO, Ignition Strategy Group & Matt Rice, Senior Director, Southwest Program, American Rivers

“Silent River” is a short film following Matt Moseley, a world record-breaking long-distance swimmer, who attempts a 52-mile swim from Mineral Bottom, near Moab, down the Green River to the confluence with the Colorado River. Moseley embarks on a physically punishing athletic endeavor while battling the worst drought in history. “Silent River” is a piece about Matt’s triumphant attempt at a swim that’s never been done, but at its core, “Silent River” is about how our rivers are hurting due to drought, climate change, and overuse, and because of it all, we are hurting too. In this WRRC Brown Bag Webinar, we will view the 13-minute short film and hear first-hand about Moseley’s experience.

Pollination is the process of sexual propagation by angiosperms which involves combining the male pollen with the female ovule and intermixing the genes to create offspring. Flowers can have male parts, female parts or most common, both. The male part of the flower is called the anther, and on the tip of the stamen is where the pollen grains are produced. The female part of the flower is called the pistil and has the stigma and ovule (where the seeds are formed). Each species of plants has a unique form and shape of pollen, and only compatible pollen can successfully pollinate the flower. The transfer of pollen grain from the stamen to the pistil and eventually the ovule is pollination. Flowers are what develop into fruits and vegetables for our food supply and give us seed to grow more plants. This important work is carried on by many insects, but the honeybee is exceptional because of their willingness to pollinate so many types of flowers, and our ability to manage their colonies and move them to the location of where we need pollination to occur.
