Within Our Reach 2016
Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 8:00 AM - Friday, December 9, 2016 at 3:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for Within Our Reach, a biennial gathering of funders, river restoration professionals, landowners, public agencies, scientists and students focused on improving the health of the Willamette River.
The Within Our Reach conference provides a unique opportunity for a diverse group of stakeholders to come together, share and learn from one another. Though threats to river health vary greatly from forested tributary headwaters to Portland Harbor, the Willamette is one connected system.
The goal of Within Our Reach is to engage a broader group of stakeholders in reflecting on the challenges facing the river and its tributaries, learning about restoration efforts in and beyond Oregon, and crafting practical strategies to ensure that a healthy river system is a secure part of our future.
Throughout the 2-day event, attendees can expect to explore some big questions, including:
- What has been accomplished in the past several years of Willamette restoration?
- How has our understanding of the river system changed? What are the management implications of that new understanding?
- What is needed to maintain the gains?
- What will it take to scale up our efforts for maximum basin-wide impact?
- How can we expand the base of support to sustain this work into the future?
- Who should be at this table, and how can we connect with them?
