Tucson Conserve to Enhance Workshop for Funding Local Enhancement Projects
Emily Brott, Sonoran Institute;
Lisa Shipek, Watershed Management Group
Candice Rupprecht, WRRC
Tucson Conserve to Enhance (C2E) program leaders will provide an update on C2E successes and share opportunities for new participants to join and grant funding for neighborhood projects. Tucson C2E is seeking community leaders with ideas on how to improve local rivers and washes. In 2013, the Tucson C2E program will invest funds raised from C2E participants and the Tucson Water bill check box to fund Community Enhancement Projects. Community Enhancement Projects will directly benefit a neighborhood's natural areas and waterways through conservation and restoration practices. More information about the grant process will be covered at the workshop; please come with your project ideas to discuss with the C2E team.
An RSVP is required for this special Brown Bag Workshop. Please RSVP at http://watershedmg.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=201. For questions contact Candice Rupprecht or 520-621-6318.

Chocolate Fest 2017
WRRC Conference 2017 - Registration Now Open!
The 2017 WRRC Annual Conference, Irrigated Agriculture in Arizona: A Fresh Perspective, will be held on March 28 at the University of Arizona Student Union. Arizona is facing the challenge of water demands outstripping supplies. Do we have enough water to sustain agricultural demands as our population grows, the Colorado River water supply-demand gap increases, and depletion threatens our groundwater aquifers? What are the specific challenges faced by irrigated agriculture in Arizona, and what advances have been made in agricultural technologies to address these challenges? Join us as we discuss and debate our options, including water conservation, changing crop mixes, and alternative water sources. Outside-of-the-box collaborative thinking is essential to pave the way for Arizonans to move into our future water reality.
