As professionals engaged in water-related extension, research and conservation, we all talk about water. So – what works and why? Tune in to this month’s edition of The Current and hear from a range of speakers. They’ll discuss their research on how we relate to water, how we value water, and how different agricultural audiences perceive water-related conservation activities and the implications these findings have for the way we communicate about this precious resource.
