Author Mehmet Murat ildan once wrote, “In the empire of desert, water is the king and shadow is the queen.” Ever wonder where the sources of water you use in your home come from? Do you know how water will be distributed in a crisis situation? What steps have been taken to mitigate the effects of global warming on Arizona’s climate? Since the early 1990s, Arizona and the Southwest have been plagued with a megadrought. If you’re curious as to why Arizona seems detached from this reality, this conversation-with-the-experts will help you understand Arizona’s complex relationship with water, agriculture, growth, and landscape. 

Join us on Wednesday, February 3 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., and we will discuss the history and the future of water in Arizona with featured speakers: Ileen Snoddy, Doug Kupel, and Dr. James Burns.
