Tune in to this month’s edition of The Current as we hear from a range of speakers as they 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.

  • David Metz, Partner and President, Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates
