nearly half of the nation's fruits, nuts and vegetables, and
generates nearly twice as many agricultural dollars as Texas.
That's why scientists in the state agree we need to protect our
multi-billion dollar food production industry from climate change.
Many of these scientists are gathering right now at UC Davis with
policymakers to figure out how the world's agricultural producers
can grow more food for more people in the face of a shifting and
no-longer-predictable global climate. The Climate-Smart Agriculture Global Science
runs through Friday.
"Anything Worth Doing"
Jon Barker and Clancy
Reece are "unconventional" adventurers who lived by the motto that
"anything worth doing is worth overdoing." Jo
tells the tale of their largely undocumented journey
down one of the West's great rivers - Idaho's Salmon River - in her
new book "Anything Worth Doing.
" She joins us in studio
to talk about the tragic run the friends set out to do when the
Salmon was at its peak.
We continue our Theater Week
coverage with a look at New Helvetia Theatre's
"Ordinary Days." The relatively young company has made a name for
itself in Sacramento by bringing lesser known musical theater to
the region. "Ordinary Days," written by Adam Gwon, is a
contemporary chamber musical in one act. We'll talk with New
Helvetia Fouding Artistic Director Connor Mickiewicz, who's also
starring in the production, and actress Courtney Glass
about what it's like to bring
newer works to Sacramento.
