Come to the twelfth annual Palouse Basin Water Summit from 4:30 to 8:00 pm on Wednesday, October 5, at the Schweitzer Event Center in Pullman, WA.

The 2016 Summit – our annual community dialogue about our local water resources – will feature the internationally acclaimed environmentalist Maude Barlow and her recent book, Blue Future: Protecting Water for People and the Planet Forever – a powerful, penetrating, and timely look at the looming global water crisis, and what we can do to prevent it. “The coming grab for the planet’s dwindling resources is the defining issue of our time. Water is not a resource put here for our convenience, pleasure and profit but the source of all life. It is urgent that we clarify the values and principles needed to protect the planet’s fresh water,” notes Barlow.

Be challenged by great presentations from local water experts, area youth and our annual State of the Basin report. The event is free and open to all community-minded Palouse area residents. Additionally, we will draw names for some fabulous prizes, including a low-flow toilet and a $1,000 wisescapingR yard makeover!
