Through the HICAHS Advisory Board we seek input from members of the agricultural community on our research projects and outreach efforts. Board members must have an interest in agricultural production within the HICAHS region (Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Montana). The board meets once per year in addition to communicating through email.  ​
