The 2017 Water Tour provided an opportunity for individuals to connect from urban Nevada to rural Nevada, and vice-versa. During the Tour, we filmed the journey and interviewed folks along the way. In January 2018, we are planning to screen two short videos in Reno: one covering the leg from Reno to Baker, NV, and the other from Las Vegas to Baker, NV. Following the screenings, there will be a Q&A panel to go into matters in more detailed; a small percentage of Nevada’s population live in rural areas, but water use in these areas determines the vitality of Nevada along with the lives of tribal communities, ranchers, and plants and wildlife of the Great Basin including Greater Sage Grouse. We cannot exhaust our arid state’s water for unsustainable growth models in Nevada’s only two urban cities.
It’ll be great, so stay tuned for more details on the when and where later this month in December. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come
