MT Watershed Coordination Council Biennial Symposium, Missoula MT


MWCC Symposium 2015




Mark your calendar for October 6th-9th in Missoula, MT!

This year, the biennial MWCC Symposium will be a Joint Fall Meeting with Montana Watershed Coordination Council (MWCC) and Montana chapter of American Water Resources Association (AWRA). Scientists want to do relevant work and water managers want to work on projects that are supported by good scientific information. There are examples of this around Montana, and we want to highlight them. Partners are also offering a capacity building workshop on the Tuesday preceding the symposium.

For more information about the joint meeting, visit the Montana chapter of AWRA’s website found here.
