38th Annual Water Seminar
April 3 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
For 38 years in southwestern Colorado, water managers, irrigators, municipal representatives, tribal members, environmental advocates, recreation enthusiasts, and interested citizens have come together each year for SWCD’s Annual Water Seminar. It’s a unique opportunity to interact with other individuals who are passionate about water resources, and hear expert speakers from around the state and region.
This year’s event is titled “Wading into Watershed Health,” and there’s a lot to talk about. Water supply and water quality are inextricably linked to the health of our watersheds–from forest to valley floor. Ditch companies, municipalities, tribes, and fish populations are among those impacted by recent wildfires. Efforts to bring significant financial support to southwest Colorado for forest management and wildfire mitigation have been successful. Regional forest products industry are gaining momentum as economic incentives shift.
Join us in a conversation about these topics at the DoubleTree Hotel on Friday, April 3, 2020 from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Doors open at 8:30am for registration and breakfast. Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the door.
