Another Successful Winter Environmental Conference

Success! The River community gathered on February 6th, 2016 to hear about a range of issues facing the St. Lawrence River from a terrific group of speakers.

Thanks to everyone – sponsors, board, staff, presenters, partnering organizations and enthusiastic attendees – who made the day a tremendous success and a lot of fun to be a part of.

Save The River’s 27th Annual Winter Environmental Conference

December 1st, 2015 | Posted by admin

WEC 27 v2

Registration is now open!

Schedule: 9:30 – Registration and morning coffee

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. – Presentations

Featured Topics:

Stop the Sewage: We watched with dismay and outrage as the City of Montreal dumped 8 billion liters (2.1 billion gallons) of untreated sewage into the St. Lawrence River. Although an assault on freshwater, it was many miles downstream. But, is it really an uncommon practice? Are other cities dumping sewage upstream of the Upper St. Lawrence? What responsibility do any of us have when we flush? A panel of experts will examine this stinkiest of problems facing freshwater and our River.

Oil and Water Don’t Mix: Continuing a discussion started at last year’s conference, we will have presentations on potential pathways for new, potentially dangerous forms of crude oil through the St. Lawrence River watershed and what steps – legal and practical – can be taken to reduce or prevent the threats they pose.

Updates on the State of the River: Attendees will hear updates on Plan 2014, microbeads, invasives, restoration efforts, educational programs and many of the many activities Save The River is involved in to protect and restore the St. Lawrence and keep it swimmable, fishable and drinkable for generations to come.

4:00 p.m. – Cocktail Reception with cash bar.

Conference fee: $50 (includes coffee, lunch, & cocktail reception with light hors d’oeuvres)
