GLIN==> WATERSHED 2000 PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT



WATERSHED 2000
Hotel Vancouver
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
8-12 July 2000

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) announces the availability of the WATERSHED 2000 Program Announcement.  WATERSHED 2000 is cosponsored by the British Columbia Water and Waste Association, and the Western Canada Water and Wastewater Association, and supported by the International Joint Commission; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Environment Canada; Fisheries and Oceans Canada; the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks; and the British Columbia Ministry of Forests.

WATERSHED 2000 offers a unique exploration of national and international watershed management challenges by bringing together leading environmental professionals for a comprehensive showcase on integrated resource management and environmental protection principles using watershed-based approaches.  Vancouver, British Columbia, the host city for WATERSHED 2000 is an ideal location to examine these issues.  The Pacific Northwest exhibits many common climatic and ecological features, yet the political and jurisdictional boundaries spanned by many of its watersheds create challenges to effective watershed management.  Participants will explore the contrasts and common approaches among Canadian and U.S. federal agencies and among the state, provincial, and tribal/band agencies.

For a printed copy of the conference program and registration information, call 800.666.0206 or 703.684.2442 (outside the U.S. and Canada); or e-mail confinfo@wef.org .  The Program is also available at http://www.wef.org/pdffiles/watershed%20broch.pdf
