For our 4th Annual Forum, we offer a day of learning and dialogue. We move down river to Greeley to remind everyone that the Poudre River is important to the full span of those of us who enjoy its waters—from its headwaters all the way to the confluence with the South Platte.
We will be making the connection between the health of upper watershed forests and the high quality water our communities count on for agricultural produce, fishing and boating, water to drink from the tap (and as beer), and for trees and urban landscapes. We will also be exploring how three sectors – agriculture, urban and environment – understand and plan for variability and uncertainties.
We’re pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be Brian Richter, Chief Scientist, Water Program of The Nature Conservancy, and author of Chasing Water: A Guide for Moving from Scarcity to Sustainability (2014).
