Event description
Join POWR, along with your friends and colleagues, for learning, networking, and fun at your biennial watershed conference!

About this event

The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) and the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) invite you to network with colleagues, learn how to strengthen your local organizations, and discover new and emerging science, tools, and resources at the 2021 PA Statewide Conference for Watershed Organizations at the Wyndham Garden Hotel, State College.

This year's theme, Watershed Connections: Adaptability, Resiliency, and Innovation highlights the attributes of healthy watersheds and vibrant organizations and will serve as the undercurrent of the presentations and conversations throughout the conference.

Schedule: The conference will begin with an opening plenary about the power of storytelling on Sunday, November 7 at 1:00 PM. After a short networking break, there will be concurrent breakout sessions in four tracks: Organizational Capacity; Aquatic Science, Monitoring and Data Use; Watershed Restoration Strategies and Partnerships; and Watershed Policy, Planning, and Strategies. Please join us Sunday evening for a dinner reception and a screening of an award-winning short film.

Monday, November 8 will begin with breakfast roundtables at 7:30 AM, followed by an opening session featuring our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Michael Mann. Concurrent sessions will then continue until about 3:30 PM, with a break for lunch. The conference will conclude with a brief gathering and wrap-up activity.

New this year, three live one-hour webinars will be hosted by POWR with subject matter experts. These will take place at 12 noon and 6 PM on November 10 and at 6 PM on November 11. Access to the webinars is exclusive to conference registrants- those who attend in person and those who attend virtually. They will not be recorded.

Virtual audiences will have live access to the opening plenary, keynote presentation, and the three webinars.

Registration: You can register for the full conference, a single-day, or virtual attendance. Please note that the deadline for early bird registration is midnight on Friday, October 8. Regular registration deadline is midnight Friday, November 5. Pricing for virtual attendance will not change.

Refund Policy: If for any reason you want to cancel your registration, POWR will issue a full refund. Deadline to request a refund is midnight Wednesday, October 27. Please email Tali MacArthur at tmacarthur@pecpa.org or Susan Myerov at smyerov@pecpa.org

Your Health and Safety: As we plan for in-person events and responses to COVID-19 continue to evolve, PEC/POWR will be monitoring guidance from the CDC and others in order to have appropriate safety protocols in place at our events. These may vary based on the type of event and other factors and may include masking and social distance requirements, proof of vaccination, and/or other precautions. Should PEC/POWR decide to convert this event to a fully virtual experience, we will convert your ticket to a $30 virtual ticket and refund you the difference. Program, registration, and health and safety updates and additional details can always be found on POWR's website. Thanks so much for joining us.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
