When I first saw the email about an internship opportunity with U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Santa Cruz River Basin Study, I didn’t give it much attention. The announcement called for a student to work on a multi-year Reclamation planning study, and stated that primary tasks involved note-taking at stakeholder meetings – neither of which were all that appealing to me. I was looking for something more exciting, some project where I could channel all the passion for water I had built over the years and was continuing to build through my graduate classes. I was looking for a platform to get the community fired up about the urgency of climate change and the critical importance of sustaining ever-threatened water supplies. Little did I know at the time that the Basin Study was just that opportunity.
