Keeping beer and rivers flowing: KSB virtual speaker series hosts Steven Prager on Sept. 8
Keep Sedona Beautiful presents Audubon Society Outreach Biologist Steven Prager on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 5 p.m. for its monthly Preserving the Wonder Speaker Series webinar, according to a news release.
Please visit the KSB website, keepsedonabeautiful.org for details.
“If whisky is for drinking and water is for fighting over, then craft beer is for bringing people together,” is a quote on the website of Western Rivers Brewers’ Council (WRBC).
In a presentation titled “Keeping Beer and Rivers Flowing,” Steve will talk about WRBC, a coalition of conservation-minded craft breweries that support the Audubon’s work protecting rivers across the Colorado River and Rio Grande basins through advocacy and outreach.
“Craft beer depends on reliable water – and so do our rivers.”
Steve connects community members with conservation action opportunities – be it through bird survey, policy action, or hands-on habitat work. Specific work includes the Western Rivers Brewers’ Council, Western Rivers Action Network, Important Bird Areas program, campus chapter and general chapter relations, and managing the nationally-recognized River Pathways program focused on inspiring teens toward careers in conservation.
Steve earned a bachelor’s degree in conservation biology/ecological sustainability from Arizona State University. When he’s not looking up to find birds, he’s looking down to find snakes.
