Water Science & Management Program Participates in Ag Day NMSU Homecoming Event
by Jesslyn Ratliff, NM WRRI Program Specialist & WSM Student Program Coordinator
Students, staff, and faculty from the Water Science & Management (WSM) Graduate Program participated in AGriculture Day on Saturday, October 28. The event was held as part of NMSU Homecoming activities and took place across the street from Aggie Memorial Stadium. It was hosted by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, NMSU College of Agricultural Consumer and Environmental Science, and presented by the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau. The purpose of the event was to celebrate New Mexico’s agriculture community.
WSM staff and students distributed program brochures and produced a water podcast that engaged public input about water use. Candy was handed out to the many trick-or-treaters that stopped by the booth.
