About this Event

The Izaak Walton League of America, with help from our Iowa Division, Des Moines Chapter, and Panora Chapter, are hosting the first Iowa Water Summit. This Summit is a collaborative conference to bring together the key contacts involved with volunteer water quality monitoring.

The first part of the IA Water Summit will include presentations. The following speakers are confirmed:

  • Mary Skopec, Ph.D., Executive Director, Iowa Lakeside Laboratory: The History of IOWATER, the legacy of volunteer water quality monitoring in Iowa
  • Samantha Briggs, IWLA Clean Water Program Director: Save Our Streams and the CLean Water Hub, How IWLA is helping volunteers in Iowa
  • Steve Konrady, Nonpoint Source Project Manager, Iowa DNR: Iowa DNR's available assistance for volunteer monitors

The afternoon will include a round table discussion to discuss needs for data, resources available, networks looking for training, further networking, and beyond.

Registration ($30) will include coffee/juice, lunch, snacks, and handouts for the Summit. Feel free to stay following closing remarks for Happy Hour.
