Coming together for Colorado’s most valuable resource

Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference 2019

October 8-10, 2019      Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa  Avon, Colorado

“The Human Element” 

Each fall, Water Education Colorado partners with the Colorado Riparian Association and the Colorado Watershed Assembly to produce the Sustaining Colorado Watersheds conference. Intended to expand cooperation and collaboration throughout Colorado in natural resource conservation, protection and enhancement, this event engages participants through discussions on emerging water issues, innovative projects, and an invaluable networking setting.

The 2019 Call for Papers is NOW OPEN! Submit your abstract for consideration by April 12, 2019.

The 2019 theme, “The Human Element,” will explore our growing human presence and resulting impacts on watersheds. At the same time, our human experiences and social/emotional connections to watersheds are integral components to be considered in the work to preserve, protect and restore our watersheds. Together we will delve into our impacts and connections. We will look for ways our influence can be both fostered and mitigated to avoid loving our home to death.

Who should attend the conference?

  • Conservation and restoration practitioners
  • Water quality specialists
  • Land use and water supply planners
  • Elected officials and managers
  • Watershed groups and coalitions
  • Citizens engaged in watershed work
