Intro to Arid Lands Framework

Our goals are to address the uniqueness of arid regions, explore the human-environmental interactions, and learn how people have historically survived by harvesting, growing, and creating systems to provide food and protection.

We interpret the SBAR research and extension activities to create engaging lessons and learning activities for secondary school classrooms and after-school programs. These lessons will challenge students to learn about the science and economies behind innovative energy solutions that could shape arid lands farming of the Southwest.

We work with our educator partners to uncover the ancestral expertise of agriculture in the Southwest and how this knowledge could inform agricultural practices for farmers today that could lead to new crop economies.
