Save the Date! Ashokan Watershed Conference on April 29

Posted on: February 21st, 2017 by Brent Gotsch

How do we sus­tain local eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment in a chang­ing envi­ron­ment? That is the top­ic of a day-long con­fer­ence in the Ashokan Water­shed on April 29, 2017. The con­fer­ence will be held at The Ashokan Cen­ter in Olive­bridge, NY. Con­fer­ence ses­sions will focus on cli­mate change, sus­tain­able eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment, com­mu­ni­ty plan­ning, inva­sive species, local fish­eries, and DEP reser­voir oper­a­tions. Plan­ning board and zon­ing board of appeals mem­bers can receive cer­tifi­cates for attend­ing four hours of train­ing.

This year, AWSMP is excit­ed to offer a co-occur­ring “Stream Explor­ers” youth con­fer­ence also on April 29 at The Ashokan Cen­ter. The “Stream Explor­ers” youth con­fer­ence will be most appro­pri­ate for chil­dren ages 8–14 or grades 3–8. All youth must be accom­pa­nied by a fam­i­ly mem­ber attend­ing the Ashokan Water­shed Con­fer­ence. The youth con­fer­ence will fea­ture hands-on out­door activ­i­ties taught by CCE edu­ca­tors dur­ing the morn­ing, and an after­noon gorge hike adven­ture in the after­noon. Chil­dren will join their fam­i­lies for lunch in the con­fer­ence din­ing hall.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the con­fer­ence will begin on March 15. Please vis­it the con­fer­ence web­site for updates and infor­ma­tion as it becomes avail­able.
