Via the St. Croix River Association:
Join Jim Gulliford April 8th for an evening, town-hall style, discussion titled, “Seeds to Supper: What’s Happening on the Land.” There is growing evidence that the climate of the Midwest is changing in ways that are likely to increase nonpoint source pollution from agricultural areas. Climate models suggest these changes are likely to continue to intensify in the future.
At the same time, demand for food, fiber, land and water are increasing with the population and the emphasis on increasing production of energy from plants will dramatically intensify the demands on the land and water. How can we meet these increased demands while sustaining our natural resources and ecosystems?
Refreshments will begin at 6:30, and the talk begins 7pm, at the UWRF University Center, River Falls, WI. No registration is required and the program is free and open to the public.
Jim Gulliford has more than 30 years of experience in natural resource protection programs in agriculture, mining and for the Environmental Protection Agency.

Gulliford directed soil and water conservation programs for the State of Iowa from 1982 – 2001 before joining the Environmental Protection Agency as Region 7 Administrator in Kansas City. From there he moved to Washington, DC as EPA Assistant Administrator for the Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances.
