Past Conferences

Federal agencies working on watershed science began this series of conferences in 2003.  Since its inception the conference has grown to serve Federal and Non-federal agencies alike.   The conferences are held in or near research watersheds with one or more field trips highlighting the contributions the research makes to environmental stewardship.  The conferences foster cross-agency collaboration and discussion.
