    Description

    The College of Agriculture, University of Arizona, has been heavily involved in providing research, education, and outreach concerning the management of watersheds. The Barr Report of 1956, a cooperative effort of the Salt River Project, the State Land Department and the University of Arizona, was a significant beginning that addressed the productivity of watersheds in the state and a plan of action to enhance water flows. Out of this initial effort came the formation of the Arizona Watershed Program, a state program that began to focus on watershed management activities in Arizona. Realizing the need for the university's involvement in the Arizona Watershed Program, the Arizona Board of Regents established the Department of Watershed Management at the University of Arizona, and a forestry program at Arizona State College (now Northern Arizona University) in 1958. The Department of Watershed Management became part of the School of Renewable Natural Resources in 1974, and now offers BS, MS and PhD degree programs in watershed management that are internationally recognized.
