Conference details:

In the West, upland forests protect the land that yields the water we all depend on for life. However, wildfires, forest pests, drought stress, outdoor recreation, poorly managed livestock grazing, timber harvesting, and unsustainable development can threaten watershed security, longevity, and resilience to disturbance. Despite these threats, there are many excellent examples of well-functioning watersheds in the West and in Utah that have been providing pristine water for over a century. If watershed managers, foresters, scientists, and others understand the correct ways to manage threats to watersheds we can continue to supply water for the millions of people and industries that depend on it. This conference will bring together water and land managers and scientists to share guidance, success stories, and research results to ensure that clean water availability is sustained in the Intermountain West.
