Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference with Keynote Dr. Wallace J. Nichols
Registration opens this week for the 10th annual Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference “In It For The Long Haul”. This conference will take place in Avon, CO October 6-8 and works to expand cooperation and collaboration throughout Colorado in natural resource conservation, protection, and enhancement by informing participants about new issues and innovative projects through networking. In 2015, the conference will focus on what is needed to ensure long-term sustainability for river health, public education and organizational management. View the agenda and check back here to register later this week.
We’ll also have the extreme pleasure and great opportunity to hear from keynote speaker Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, author of the bestselling book Blue Mind. Nichols will discuss the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that draw humans to water – oceans, rivers and lakes and the recent findings in neuroscience that indicate that proximity to water can improve mood, performance, health, and success. Come enjoy his talk at 7:30pm on October 6, bring or purchase your copy of Blue Mind and attend his book signing immediately following the talk.
It’s a great book that has had a big effect on how I live my life. Heartily recommended.
