Engaging the Next Generation of Water Stewards

October 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm

Thursday, October 20th at 2pm CT

Water resource management is a field at the nexus of agriculture, natural resources, social science, public health and economics – all of which provide a wealth of professional opportunities. Yet, many students have limited exposure to watershed management as a field of study or a future professional opportunity.

This special edition of The Current Webinar Series will take place on ‘Imagine a Day Without Water’ and will feature research on environmental education – who we are reaching and who we aren’t – and showcase two programs aimed at engaging youth and young professionals in water resource management.

Featured Speakers:

  • Justin Hougham, Associate Professor, Division of Extension at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • John McMaine, Griffith Chair in Agriculture and Water Resources, Director of the South Dakota Water Resources Institute, Director of the Mesonet at SDSU and Assistant Professor/Extension Specialist-Water Management Engineer at South Dakota State University
  • Jennifer Fetter, Extension Educator and Water Resources Program Team Leader at Penn State Extension
