Announcing the Cedar River Watershed Coalition Fall 2018 Meeting 

State of the Cedar River Watershed: 10 Years After the Flood

Mark your calendars for the Cedar River Watershed Coalition’s fall meeting on Thursday, September 6th from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm at Hartman Reserve Nature Center (657 Reserve Drive, Cedar Falls). This fall’s meeting will focus on the state of the Cedar River Watershed in the ten years since the historic Flood of 2008. Break-out tracks on water quality, grassroots engagement, flood mitigation, and watershed planning will highlight the progress that has been made to date, and examine where action is still needed to help achieve flood mitigation and water quality goals for the watershed. The meeting will wrap up with a tour of urban conservation efforts in the Dry Run Creek Watershed Project.

If you’d like to attend, please RSVP by August 30th so we can provide an accurate count to the caterer. Register here: Cedar River Watershed Coalition Meeting Signup
