 Dear Colleague:

     This is to announce a faculty position available immediately at the 
     University of Nevada Cooperative Extension in Social Horticulture. 
     Deadline is May 31. The position announcement follows this 
     information. It is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a rapidly 
     growing population approaching 1.4 million people. The community is 
     very supportive of this position. The position has two staff 
     associated with it and a good budget. Salary and benefits are very 
     competitive. The position has tremendous flexibility and freedom since 
     it is a new position. It has a very active Master Gardener program, 
     community gardens that are in need of university and volunteer 
     assistance and excited teachers at the school district. We have strong 
     consumer educational programming in natural pest control and the use 
     of alternative methods for controlling pests. Our programming is also 
     strong in sustainable desert urban landscapes. This position is ready 
     to take off with tremendous impact with the right person. Our 
     horticulture program has been emphasizing natural and biological 
     control measures for over five years. We are currently involved in 
     research with recycled water and biosolids. This is a great 
     opportunity for the right person.

     If you aren't directly interested, could you please forward this 
     to someone who might be interested?

     Thank you. For more information, please call me at 702-257-5509, or
