"May you live in interesting times." While simultaneously a curse and a blessing, this statement is never more true than today. All conferences strive to be relative and timely, but this AWRA event will set a new standard for relevance.
Today, our nation is facing challenges that encompass deteriorating infrastructure, climate change, drinking water quality, environmental alteration, endangered species, and water conflicts, among others. Scientific rigor and substantive discourse are values that are being dismissed and ridiculed at the national level. What does this mean for our precious water resources - and their protection, governance, management, and sustainable use? What role will our water resources community play?We will have an all-day UAV (drone) workshop on Sunday, November 5th, at least one Lunch 'n Learn event and our own 'Artist-in-Residence', April Waters. More to come! Come to Rip City in November 2017 and join the conversation.
