Watershed Symposium

***Save the Date***

9th Annual
Salt Lake County Watershed Symposium

November 18 & 19, 2015



 Your opportunity to join the conversation about water quality, pollution control, and nature protection. Find out what's being done to make a difference, and what you can do!


Free and open to everyone, the Watershed Symposium brings together water quality experts, policy makers, environmental advocates, industry, academics, students, and the public. Speakers and sessions cover a broad range of topics---from general interest to technical---with local, regional, and national relevance.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Daniel McCool--Director of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program and a professor in the Political Science Department at the University of Utah.
  • Patrick A. Shea--Pat is a Salt Lake Native and a conservation biologist who also practices law (one call, is not all). He served in the Clinton Administration as the National Director of the Bureau of Land Management. 

The 2015 Watershed Symposium will be held at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center again this year. This wonderful multi-use facility is located along the Jordan River in West Valley City.

We're trying something new this year, 25-minute breakout sessions. This will allow us to offer more sessions on more topics. Taking a cue from TED Talk philosophy, shorter talks are "long enough to be serious and short enough to hold people's attention".

Read more about why shorter presentations are better.
