The theme of this year's Connecting Ohio's Watersheds event is "Integrating and Implementing Watershed Management Planning." It focuses on creating sustainable watershed groups and locally relevant watershed plans. The goal of the conference is to facilitate an exchange of ideas among the state's water resource professionals on what goes into a meaningful watershed management plan.
The annual Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO) spring meeting and the Connecting Ohio’s Watersheds Conference planning committees have joined forces to offer an outstanding program. Elected officials, regional planners, educators, environmentalists, students, researchers and anyone interested in the health and well being of watersheds are invited to attend.
