Water usage and landscape decision-making in the Fresno/Clovis area, on Feb 4, 2013

Greetings fellow Cafénistas!

Join us on February 4th for a look at an issue close to home! Dr. Andrew R. Jones, of the Department of Sociology at CSU—Fresno will tell us about research findings from the social survey and site visits conducted as part of the ongoing examination of water usage and its impacts on biodiversity in the Fresno/Clovis Metropolitan Area conducted by ULTRA-FACES (Urban Long Term Research Area – Fresno And Clovis Ecosocial Study). What are potential barriers to people modifying their landscapes and water usage along lines of sustainability? Come to Monday’s presentation and Dr. Jones will provide some insights he and his colleagues have uncovered.

We will continue to meet at the Cafe Via, near Herndon and Blackstone, where dinner will be served from 6:00 PM onwards, with the talk to begin at 7:00 PM.

A poster with full details is available below, for download and sharing. Please join us, and bring a friend or two along!
