Collaborating for Solutions: Practical Sessions to Achieve Watershed Plans

Case studies that apply traditional and alternative methods to reduce nitrogen and improve water quality

Conference Agenda-at-a-Glance

We are pleased to announce that the Cape Coastal Conference is back! In the tradition of this popular regional event, we are looking forward to welcoming decision-makers, managers, and researchers to learn about and discuss the best available science-based solutions to address coastal challenges that we face in the Cape and Islands region. This year’s conference will focus on action to restore water quality and highlight local case studies that apply and evaluate traditional and alternative methods to reduce nutrients in Cape Cod watersheds. Cooperation is key to managing watersheds spanning town boundaries, thus collaborating on solutions to achieve watershed goals is a major theme threaded throughout the day. Conference attendees and speakers will exchange knowledge around the challenges related to watershed planning through small-group facilitated discussions during a roundtable session. The Coastal Training Program will capture major themes and future action steps from these discussions to distribute to attendees after the conference. We invite you to be part of the conversation by joining us at the Emerald Resort & Conference Center on June 18, 2024 for a full day event! Stay tuned for agenda details and speaker bios coming soon.
