Save The River’s Annual Winter Environmental Conference

Save The River's Winter Environmental Conference is one of the ways we bring important information to the large and diverse River community. It is a regionally significant and well-attended event that has been held annually for over 25 years. Every February more than 150 year-round and seasonal residents, community members and local leaders come to Clayton to hear from national and regional policy makers, scientist and opinion leaders about topics of critical importance to the health of the River.

Business and Individual sponsorship opportunities are available at several levels.
