This presentation will focus on opportunities that the green industry has to contribute to addressing water challenges in the western U.S. Recent changes in Utah water policy and findings from a statewide “Future of Great Salt Lake Survey” research report will help highlight implications for the roles nursery and landscape professionals can play in sustainability transitions.
Our presenter Dr. Joanna Endter-Wada is a Professor of Natural Resource Policy and Social Science in the Department of Environment & Society, Quinney College of Natural Resources at Utah State University. Her research focuses on water policy, urban landscape water use and conservation, the human dimensions of drought and climate change, the integration of land and water in planning, and the Great Salt Lake and its wetlands. Her USU Extension role includes working with the Center for Water Efficient Landscaping and leading the WaterMAPS™ applied research team. Dr. Endter-Wada has served at state and federal levels in policy-related appointments, including on the Water Advisory Team appointed by Governor Herbert that produced Utah’s 2017 Recommended State Water Strategy and currently on the Great Salt Lake Strike Team. She holds a Ph.D. from the School of Social Sciences at the University of California, Irvine.
