You are cordially invited to submit ideas for presentations at the 12th Annual Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference. This highly popular event expands cooperation and collaboration throughout our state for natural resource conservation, protection, and enhancement by informing citizen groups, agencies, consultants, and legislators about current issues and through networking opportunities.

In 2017, our conference will focus on “Coming Together – the Confluence of Science and Society”. The following sub-themes will be featured this year:

  • Non-traditional partnerships to share resources and improve stream health;
  • Reaching the right people; how outreach and education has affected water project implementation;
  • Using data to tell stories that bridge divides, make compelling cases for restoration and create catalysts for decision making and forward momentum;
  • Innovative agricultural and range management practices and partnerships to promote soil and stream health;
  • Balancing watershed health and resource development in mining and energy;
  • Disaster recovery projects: adapting to a changing environment and engaging stakeholders in the ecology of their watershed;
  • Use of innovative or under used techniques to address watershed and stream health challenges.

We are requesting your submission by Monday April 10, 2017. You can submit your topic on the form on this page. Please indicate which of the bulleted points above would be covered in your talk. Submittal of your proposal does not necessarily mean it will be a part of the conference. The agenda committee will meet to discuss which submissions work best with this year's theme and will inform you by July 1 if your presentation has been accepted. At that point we’ll ask you for a more detailed abstract and biography. Your submission should include:

  • Presentation title (min 15 characters, max 150 characters)
  • Short overview of your presentation (min 200 characters, max 500 characters)
  • Indicate if you prefer a 30 minute oral presentation, 30-90 minute panel discussion or a poster presentation
