The Verde River: State of the Watershed Conference
The Verde River: State of the Watershed Conference, hosted by the Verde Watershed Restoration Coalition (VWRC). This event is held to bring together a broad network of partners, community members, local leadership, scientists, restoration practitioners, business owners, and all other river enthusiasts who have a vested interest in the health of the Verde River Watershed.
Through field trips, conference session discussions, and a variety of speakers, we bring our audience into the folds of the state of the Verde River Watershed as it sustains flows, restores habitat, and promotes community. VWRC invites all of you—our partners and friends—to join us for this annual event, and contribute to its success.
