The 2014 Keystone Coldwater Conference will be held on February 21-22 at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in State College.
On February 21 there will be an optional afternoon workshop that will focus on how to protect, conserve, and restore stream habitat, while also protecting adjacent property from potential flooding impacts. The workshop will be followed by a Friday evening social. At the social attendees will have the opportunity to network and visit the many exhibitors and posters. The event will include appetizers and a cash bar.
On February 22, the program will begin at 8:30 a.m. with our keynote speaker Chris Wood, CEO of Trout Unlimited. Twelve breakout sessions will round off the morning and afternoon, with topics related to conserving, protecting, and restoring our coldwater streams.
The presentations will highlight research, case studies, proactive community action, policy and regulations, and targeted outreach and advocacy that have played a part in ensuring environmental protection.
