Conferences & Training

A pri­ma­ry mis­sion of the Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram (AWSMP) is to pro­vide edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties for water­shed res­i­dents to learn about stream sci­ence and how it’s applied to man­ag­ing our water­shed. We pro­vide mul­ti­ple events designed to edu­cate landown­ers, munic­i­pal offi­cials, high­way depart­ments, youth and the pub­lic.
