KAWS & Cargill Currents Presents a Symposium for Sustaining Water in the Ark River Basin

Thanks to a generous grant from the Global Water Challenge and Cargill Currents North America, registration fees have been waived for this event. Hear from Producers, Geologists, and Industry-leaders, on water quality and quantity in the Arkansas River Basin. Learn how partnerships lead to sustainability. From irrigation technology to soil health and cost-share programs, we'll have the professionals on-site to explain the programs that matter most in the Ark River Basin. Limited Landowner and Producer scholarships are available to offset hotel expenses. Evening social and lunch included!

An event agenda will be posted and updated as the event gets closer.
