Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Brent Gotsch

Full length videos from the 2015 Ashokan Watershed Conference held on April 10 at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge are now available for viewing on the AWSMP Youtube channel.

Watch and listen as Bob Steuding speaks about the building of the Ashokan Reservoir and the social forces that drove it. Learn from Professional Engineer George Fowler how historical stream management practices have caused lasting impacts on our region’s streams. Become engaged while listening to forest entomologist Mark Whitmore and Town of Woodstock Environmental Commission Chairman Jim Hanson explain how invasive insects like Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and Emerald Ash Borer are threatening our native forests, the impacts they will cause and the work that communities need to do to prepare for them. Finally, ¬†hear from a panel of “steam experts” as they answer some of the more common and pressing questions that the public has about streams and how they are managed.

This is a great opportunity for those who missed the conference but want to hear the speaker presentations, or for those who attended and want to revisit some information  they may have forgotten. There are a number of other great videos from past conferences and events on the channel so be sure to check those out too!
