Message from the Associate Dean and Extension Director  

On 6-7 August the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension System (CES) conference will be held in Tucson.  This conference is intended to be fully inclusive for all CES personnel from every campus, county, and Experiment Station unit.

With a broadly distributed organization like the CES, this conference provides a unique opportunity for us to meet and interact with each other directly.  It is not often that we have this type of event to convene CES people from across the state at one time.

Dominic Rodriguez and the planning committee have been working for several months and I appreciate their efforts to develop an excellent program for this conference.  Conference registration is live at https://arizonace.quickbase.com/db/bpig6agym?a=nwr.  We are still accepting proposals for breakout sessions and poster submissions until July 5th.  We have a lot to cover with the limited amount of time available. Agendas will be distributed soon for your planning purposes. 

I look forward to seeing all of you in Tucson on 6-7 August!

Congratulations Betsy Greene

Dr. Betsy Greene, University of Arizona Equine Specialist, has been awarded the 2019 Extension Award by the Western Section of the American Society of Animal Science.

Looking for Host Families

Host families must have a girl child aged 10-14. Host families do not need to be 4-H families.
Please spread the word and contact Nick Morris (nmorris6@email.arizona.edu) if you or someone you know may be interested.

Calculations for a Grid-Connected  Solar Energy System
Edward Franklin

Whether you live on a farm or ranch, in an urban area, or somewhere in between, it is likely you and your family rely on electricity. Most of us receive our electrical power from a local utility. A growing trend has been to generate our own electrical power. Solar energy systems have grown in popularity are available for residential, agricultural, and commercial applications.

Arizona residents who live in the desert valleys with its surrounding mountains (sometimes called “sky islands”) are a fortunate bunch. Biodiversity of plants and animals throughout our state is among the best anywhere on earth. We have a seemingly endless supply of flora and fauna to photograph, sketch, collect, and admire and for the most part we are hindered in our interactions only by our imaginations. However, for those of us who try and incorporate our favorite local plant into our home landscape, we are limited by the specific requirements that each plant must have to thrive and grow.

ALVSCE UCAP Open Forum on 7/15

Join us for an Open Forum to share information and answer questions about how UCAP has been handled in our division.  We will have a panel of the folks from ALVSCE who have been consulted on their areas of expertise throughout the UCAP process while positions were being mapped available to answer questions.
