CDFA joins Californians in remembering longtime public television personality Huell Howser, who has reportedly died in Southern California at age 67. Mr. Howser’s programs frequently highlighted California’s bucolic and rural characteristics, including agriculture, and reached millions of viewers. Over the years, he partnered with CDFA on two different projects. One, California’s Golden Fairs, featured a number of local fairs around the state. The other project, a 2001 public service announcement about the Red Imported Fire Ant, helped the Department spread the word about a troublesome invasive pest.
