Urban Conservation Unit in the limelight!

Last week, Miami-Dade Extension’s Urban Conservation Unit (UCU), of which I am an honorary member, celebrated some noteworthy events.

First, team leader Mary McCready returned from an Extension Professionals conference in Orlando with a box of 2011 UF/IFAS Extension calendars. Soon to be available at Extension offices across the state, the 2011 calendar prominently features the UCU and the use of irrigation control technology – a practice which the UCU has helped introduce to the general public in Miami-Dade.

Second, earlier this year the UCU was selected as an Extension “success story” for Florida’s South District. In late April, a UF camera crew met us at a homeowner property during an irrigation assessment to film a video profile. After screening at the aforementioned Extension conference, the video profile was released widely last week. Check it out!
