WHAT ABOUT THAT WATER?
You know we live in a desert, right? It might be interesting to note that some cities have lots of water and others struggle to conserve it. Yes, it's a complicated and political conundrum. Organizers of the 2018 Salt Lake County Watershed Symposium promise sessions that cover a broad range of topics on water quality and watershed issues with local, regional and national relevance. "Water has long shaped the West, but the future is unlikely to look like the past. How do we proactively plan to address the challenges we anticipate, and those we cannot foresee?" the event's website asks. Taryn Finnessey,senior climate change specialist with the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, shares her work on drought and water planning.Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 1355 W. 3100 South, West Valley City, 385-468-6600, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 8 a.m. to Thursday, Nov. 15, 4:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2QboUeZ.

Lectures and panel discussions cover everything from stewardship to management plans, and you can learn about recent court rulings related to tax benefits and how open lands affect the economy.
