2018 SUSTAINING COLORADO WATERSHEDS CONFERENCE

OCTOBER 9 – 11, 2018 – WESTIN RIVERFRONT RESORT, AVON, CO

“The Color of Water: Exploring the Spectrum”

DRAFT AGENDA

Early Bird Registration is Now Open

Here’s the pitch from Water Education Colorado:

In 2018, our conference will focus on “The Color of Water: Exploring the Spectrum.” Our theme this year intends to tap into the creativity of our community and investigate how diverse watershed interests interact. Water touches us all from forests to farms. We’ve branched out this year to delve into water for environment, agriculture, recreation, mining, energy, forest health, city water, rural water, source water, recycled and reuse water. We even have an acronym, ROYGBIV:

  • Red Tape – Improving policy/permitting processes locally or nationally to get good projects on the ground
  • Opportunities – Finding the funding and identifying new collaborators that can make projects possible
  • Yielding Results – Innovative design in watershed restoration that’s proving effective on the ground
  • Green vs Gray – Advances in stormwater management practices that utilize natural infrastructure
  • Barrier Busting – Going beyond philosophical divides and building political will for good solutions
  • Industry Voices – Forest, agriculture, mining and energy practices to meet multiple stakeholder priorities
  • Vulnerability – Addressing drought, floods, fire and climate change uncertainties to better inform planning
