Farmers and ranchers and the businesses they rely upon face enough challenges, let alone worrying about whether water supplies will be available to support their operations. On the other hand, there are countless environmental activist groups – many with budgets in the tens of millions of dollars- who are doing everything in their power to influence courts, media and politicians in order to reallocate water supplies away from agriculture.

Your membership matters. Whether you support the Alliance’s advocacy, outreach or education efforts, you can rest assured that your investment will promote the protection of Western irrigated agriculture and the strong rural communities that it supports. I encourage you to make your contribution to the Alliance today.
