Join CHNEP March 28–30 at its seventh
Charlotte Harbor Watershed Summit: Showcasing Our Accomplishments.
The Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program (CHNEP) is a partnership to protect and restore water resources of Florida from Venice to Bonita Springs to Winter Haven. Thanks to the Planning Committee, the 2017 Summit will be an opportunity to share the latest research findings and to network. Sessions include:
Approximately 20 projects will be featured each day in either a 20-minute presentation, a lightning presentation of 5 or 10 minutes or in a poster. The draft agenda can be viewed on the CHNEP website (https://www.chnep.org/watershed-summit). The final agenda and abstracts will be emailed to all who register and will also be made available on the website once they are confirmed.
You are welcome to participate in this free program in any way you have the time and interest.
No matter how you wish to participate, please register by Monday, March 27 on this page.
We ask that everyone register no matter how they wish to participate: only wish to receive updates, attend remotely via WebEx, attend a portion or attend all three days as a speaker or guest. Lunch will only be available for those who pre-paid by March 20 through this registration page, and for presenters on the day of their presentations. Food can't be brought into the Event Center, but there are several restaurants within a few blocks of the event center. You may participate even if you aren't able to register by March 27 but it'll help greatly with logistics if the majority who attend do register by this date.
Registration tips: Select all the "tickets" for the items you wish to "order." If you change your mind, please follow the guidance on the email you've received to modify your registration yourself.
