Omaha World Herald Article: As drought tied to global climate change increasingly taps out rivers and groundwater basins in the American West, forward-thinking water conservation methods will be critical to meeting water needs and reducing disputes. That’s the message water expert Peter Gleick will bring to Omaha on Monday as the keynote speaker in a water conference sponsored by the Nebraska League of Conservation Voters.

Omaha World Herald Article: Nebraska’s current and future water supply will be the topic of next week’s Nebraska Conservation Summit. The goal of the event is to increase public understanding of Nebraska’s most pressing water issues, how they are interconnected, and to discover potential solutions that balance competing water interests for the benefit of all Nebraskans, said Chelsea Johnson, Deputy Director of the Nebraska League of Conservation Voters.

Through holding events that inform about current conservation issues and providing attendees with the tools to take action, we increase civic engagement and empower Nebraskans to have an impact on public policy. Go to our Events page to find out when our next community event is happening.
