18th Annual Gila River Festival Highlights
The 18th Annual Gila River Festival – One Water, Many Currents – will be held Sept. 22 – 25 in Silver City, the Gila National Forest and along the Gila River. The festival will explore the many ways in which water connects us and is the common thread weaving together the Gila River watershed’s human and ecological communities of the past, present and into the future.
Earth Matters co-host and Gila Resources Information Project Executive Director Allyson Siwik talks to two Gila River Festival field trip leaders: hydrogeologist Dylan Duvergé and biochemist Ron Parry.
Dylan Duvergé, a hydrogeologist and owner of Stratus Environmental, a local environmental consulting firm, will be leading a field trip for the Gila River Festival entitled “Hydrology Matters – Relating the Science to Our Lives” on Saturday, September 24.
Ron Parry, professor emeritus in chemistry at Rice University, is a lifelong naturalist with a keen interest in butterflies and moths, as well as environmental issues. Ron will be leading a field trip for this year’s Gila River Festival on “Butterflies of the Gila” on Saturday, September 24.
