Event Description
The Kansas Natural Resource Council, with help from the Kansas Humanities Council and the National Science Foundation-funded Biofuels and Climate Change: Farmers' Land Use Decisions research team, has produced a documentary film series titled "The Waters of Kansas," featuring water resources and people from across Kansas who casually and intimately interact with groundwater or surface water, reservoirs or rivers. Each film touches on the history of developing and using a water source, the current competing interests for water, and how communities are or are not grappling with the future. Two, 20-minute films are featured at this event: The Waters of Kansas - Cheyenne Bottoms, and The Waters of Kansas - Farming over the Ogallala.
