Free and open to all, the Salt Lake County Watershed Symposium encourages a comprehensive review of the current state of our watershed while creating learning and networking opportunities for a broad array of stakeholders. Sessions cover a broad range of topics on water quality and watershed issues with local, regional, and national relevance.
The Symposium is hosted annually by Salt Lake County Watershed Planning & Restoration.
Some of our favorite comments from last year:
"This is one of the best opportunities to network and build partnering relationships toward supporting a healthier watershed. The free admission and food makes it possible for all to attend and its timely content makes it appealing to an interesting cross-section of professions and disciplines. Great job!"
"...great location/facility, topics, presentation structure, opportunity to engage with fellow professionals and community. Seriously one of the best, well-run conferences I've ever attended. "
"I always look forward to the Watershed Symposium. It's a wonderful gestalt of useful and insightful information about what's going on in the watershed, which is of course an important bottomline. We are all in this together and we need to engage in opportunities for sharing and building connectivity so that we can effectively address the critical and timely needs that exist in our watershed given our growth projections and never ending need to build awareness. I love the networking potential and am very proud of the work that Salt Lake County is doing in this area." Lynn DeFreitas, FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake
"The range of topics was very good and the overall quality of presentations was much better than most technical meetings I have attended recently. Thank you for a great symposium!"
"The Symposium is tremendously important to the future of all of Utah." -Zach Frankel, Utah Rivers Council
