Ashokan Watershed Conference

The Ashokan Water­shed Con­fer­ence is a chance for the com­mu­nity to learn more about stream and water issues in the water­shed. The con­fer­ence is held in the spring at the Ashokan Cen­ter in Olive­bridge, NY. This infor­ma­tive event fea­tures local lead­ers, stream man­agers, and sci­ence and cul­ture pre­sen­ta­tions. After­noon break-out ses­sions may offer con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion credits.

The Ashokan Water­shed Con­fer­ence is orga­nized by the Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram and a team of ded­i­cated stake­hold­ers. The con­fer­ence is spon­sored by Cor­nell Coop­er­a­tive Exten­sion of Ulster County, the Ulster County Soil & Water Con­ser­va­tion Dis­trict, and the NYC Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Protection.
