Watershed Day is a great opportunity to learn about the political climate regarding the future of watershed restoration in California. It also provides a forum for watershed practitioners and restorationists to meet with their Legislators and let them know that it pays to invest in community-based watershed management.
This year's event continues the California Watershed Network's annual outreach program that first began in 2002 for watershed restorationists, state agency representatives and legislators.
Confirmed speakers include Natural Resources Secretary John Laird, State Water Board Member Steve Moore and legislative wizard, Alf Brandt.
The program will examine the opportunities and constraints in obtaining funding and establishing sustainable jobs for watershed restoration activities throughout the State. The event begins at 8 a.m. at the CalEPA Building in Sacramento. Registration is only $40 before April 1, $50 in April.
