Join us for our 3rd biennial symposium on the Green-Duwamish Watershed as we focus on not only planning for a sustainable but a resilientfuture in the era of Climate Change. As we gain a deeper understanding of the impacts of Climate Change, how we address its challenges and find opportunities will shape our region’s future. The symposium will focus on not only on the challenges but how through engagement, innovation and adaption, we are meeting the challenges.
We invite people involved in conservation, restoration, research, urban planning, education, community engagement, business, and human services in the Green-Duwamish Watershed and its shoreline sub-watersheds to attend. This is an opportunity to connect with others involved in improving the ecological and community health across the watershed for our future.
The symposium is a one-day event, giving exposure and promoting the broad and diverse work being done throughout the watershed and the opportunity to network with individuals across fields (technical and non-technical), locations, cultures, organizations and settings. All the presentations are given in one large room, thus enabling everyone attending exposure to topics and individuals not within their normal purview.
The forum is for professionals, academics, community members and stakeholders to exchange information regarding the watershed, crossing all professions and sectors.
