The 2019 State of the Watershed Conference will be held at the
Cliff Castle Casino in Camp Verde, AZ October 28–30, 2019.
You should attend this conference if you care about the Verde River and any of its tributaries
and want to learn about its current condition and how you can ensure its future.
In 2018, Friends, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, with funding from US Forest Service, initiated the development of a Watershed Report Card to define and measure the condition (status and trends) of the watershed. The results of the Watershed Report Card will be presented at the 2019 State of the Watershed Conference.
Early registration opens August 19, 2019
Watershed Report Card Workshops
More than 25 diverse stakeholders came together to conceptualize the watershed, create a shared vision, and discuss indicators for the Verde River Watershed Report Card. Report cards evaluate the health of watersheds based on a set of scientifically-derived indicators and thresholds.
