14th National Watershed Conference coming to Fort Worth in May

The National Watershed Coalition (NWC) has announced the 14th National Watershed Conference and National Watershed Program Partner Summit, which will be held at the Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel in downtown Fort Worth May 17-20, 2015.

The event is being presented in partnership with the Texas Association of Watershed Sponsors, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, Texas Association of Conservation Districts, Tarrant Regional Water District, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Texas. The conference will address both current and future water resource issues related to conservation, management, water  quality and flood protection on a watershed scale.

The 2015 program will highlight opportunities for combining resources from the portfolio of complimentary state and federal agency programs. The goal of the conference program committee is to provide a blend of presentations that address efforts to create safe, productive and healthy watersheds using a wide variety of resources, according to the committee.

NWC is currently soliciting abstracts for presentations that address USDA Watershed Program specific concerns. All accepted papers will be eligible for publication in the conference proceedings. Send abstracts to Dr. Dan A. Sebert at nwchdqtrs@sbcglobal.net. The abstract deadline is Jan. 16, 2015. For additional information about the call for abstracts and for registration, visit watershedcoalition.org.
