May 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15 – $45
The Living River Speaker Series is an opportunity to expand your knowledge about the San Joaquin River. In the inaugural series, expert presenters will explore topics relating to the history and future of water in the Central Valley. Grab dinner from the food truck on site, sip a beverage at cocktail hour, then enjoy the hour-long presentation held in the River Center Barn.
Changes in temperature norms and precipitation as well as weather and climate extremes are influencing agriculture throughout the world. In such changing conditions, how do family farming businesses as well as the industry as a whole adapt practices to make operations more resilient and sustainable for the long term? This presentation will explore the implications of drought and reduced access to water on businesses and communities in the Central Valley as well as California’s agricultural industry at large, and what the future may hold for stakeholders moving forward under these conditions.
