Dr. Joanna Endter-Wada facilitated first Utah Growing Water Smart workshop

November 15-17, 2022: Five northern Utah communities participated in the state’s inaugural Growing Water Smart workshop.

Using a Utah-focused curriculum developed by Drs. Joanna Ender-Wada and Kelly Kopp of the Center for Water Efficient Landscaping (CWEL) at USU, the facilitated workshop provided collaborative opportunities, policy tools, technical resources, and assistance for the communities seeking to strengthen their water security in the face of extended drought, climate change, and growing populations and economies.

The next workshop is planned for early June 2023 and will be held in Logan, Utah on the campus of Utah State University.
