What the Symposium is all about
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.
Hosted annually by Salt Lake County's Watershed Planning & Restoration Program.
Kudos for the Watershed Symposium
Some of our favorite comments and feedback over the years...
"It was great to attend a conference with such a breadth of topics and technical/big-picture talks.The details made it a memorable event and I'd like to mention some aspects of the symposium that stood out relative to other conferences I attended in 2019. First, the trade show and display tables were centrally located with lots of opportunities for interaction. Second, the application of technology enhanced the whole experience--so often it detracts. Third, it might be a small item, but I appreciated the foresight to have two-sided (and easy to read) name tags; it helped facilitate many conversations. Good Job!"
"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."
"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. 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 Symposium is tremendously important to the future of all of Utah." -Zach Frankel, Utah Rivers Council
