The Contra Costa Watershed Forum is excited to welcome community members and watershed stakeholders to the 2023 Watershed Symposium October 26 from 9:30am-5:30pm. We invite all creek enthusiasts, watershed advocates, wildlife supporters, conservationists, students, and interested community members to attend this event!

The theme of this year’s Symposium, Intergenerational Watershed Stewardship, seeks to open an inclusive and practical dialogue between established watershed advocates and the emerging generation of watershed stewards.

As we recognize the implications of our changing climate, how can we strengthen our commitments to collaboration and sharing knowledge among diverse participants in and around Contra Costa? How can we ensure that multi-year projects and plans come to fruition? We will explore answers to these questions and hope you will take part in the dialogue.
