Register Now For 2021 Virtual Watershed Congress Sept. 20-24

Registration for the
2021 Watershed Congress, presented by the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, is now open. The event, which will be held virtually from September 20 - 24, will share with participants information, tools, and practices for watershed protection and restoration. 

The Watershed Congress has evolved since 1998 to advance the best available information and techniques for protecting and restoring watersheds. 

The focus on networking across disciplines means that the Watershed Congress melds science, policy, and practical applications into one program. The 2021 Watershed Congress features the great presentations participants have come to expect.

The event will begin on September 20 with the keynote, “A Fishable, Swimmable, Delaware River.”  A group of organizations is actively petitioning the Delaware River Basin Commission to upgrade the standards for the lower Delaware River from secondary to primary contact, and the keynote will explore these efforts and discuss how the lower Delaware River can truly become a swimmable and fishable River. Read more about the keynote here. 

The Watershed Congress Planning Committee also seeks to advance justice and inclusion as part of our mission, as we continue to protect and restore watersheds. The Watershed Congress can be a vehicle to advance justice and inclusion, and bridge diversity divides as well as to present the best new watershed science. 

Sessions being offered in 2021 include “How Behavioral Science Can Inform Environmental Outreach and Communication,” “Justice, Inclusion, and Difficult Conversations in the Environmental Field,” “The Lower Delaware River: An Ecosystem in the Balance, Delaware River,” and “A Path to Equitable Water Infrastructure”. 

Three registration levels will be offered at this event. For details about speakers, the schedule, and tickets, visit the Watershed Congress website.
