September 21 - 25, 2020

Tune in to today's sessions, starting at 12:30pm!

Sharing information, tools, and practices for watershed protection and restoration

The Watershed Congress has evolved since 1998 to advance the best available information and techniques for protecting and restoring watersheds. The focus on networking across disciplines means that the Watershed Congress melds science, policy, and practical applications into one program. As a result, the annual Watershed Congress is a highly anticipated event for people interested in understanding, protecting, and restoring their local streams.

This year’s program features a keynote on community building and engagement efforts to move inclusively, build awareness, and activate urban youth and adults in water protection, as well as information-packed breakout sessions, presenter’s roundtables, poster sessions, and much more.

UPDATE: The 2020 Watershed Congress will be held entirely online. For more information, read our update here.
