Human Element Rainbow_2019 SCW Conference.jpg

The 2019 conference will explore the influence of The Human Element on water and watersheds in Colorado and the West. Our growing human presence and resulting impacts on watersheds is undeniable. 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 fostered and mitigated to avoid loving our home to death.

The Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference is incredible opportunity to garner knowledge, network with fellow colleagues in the field, and discuss the current issues facing our waterways. It’s a chance to reconnect my every day work with emerging trends, new research, and novel approaches to tackle the issues our watersheds are facing.
