Winter Environmental Conference

For 25 years, Save The River's Winter Environmental Conference has brought together policy makers, scientists, elected officials and citizens to discuss the most critical issues facing the River.

In past years, the conference has included sessions on River wildlife, pressing policy issues such as invasive species, winter navigation, and oil spills, as well as entertaining key note presentations by regional policy makers and artists.
