Professor Kopp’s research efforts are focused on landscape water conservation and sustainable turfgrass management. She serves on the Board of Directors of USU’s Center for Water Efficient Landscaping and is board member and past president of the Utah Water Conservation Forum.

What is Research Landscapes?

At Utah State University Research Landscapes, we provide an entry-point for state and community decision-makers across the Wasatch Front to connect with the researchers who are investigating the most critical issues facing the state.

Why should I attend?

As the state’s land-grant institution, Utah State University is uniquely situated in the state to help solve Utah’s land, water, and air challenges. During the event, the presenters will share data-driven discoveries to provide the state’s decision-makers and stakeholders with tools and insights to address these critical issues.

What is the event like?

Each virtual event will feature a video presentation that highlights the researchers and their work, followed by a live question-and-answer session with the presenters via Zoom. Both aspects of the event will be available on the Research Landscapes homepage on the day of the event.
