2021 Watershed Wednesdays Forum –Weaving Water Quality into All We Do

Carson City, NV– The Carson Water Subconservancy District (CWSD) is hosting Carson River Coalition’s “Watershed Wednesdays,” a free virtual forum series spanning the five Wednesdays in March! Each Watershed Wednesday will have a unique theme where speakers share their knowledge, programs, and projects focused on the Carson River Watershed. Weekly themes are Education and Outreach (3/3), Recreation (3/10), Floodplain Protection (3/17), Climate Resilience (3/24), and Floodplain management (3/31). Each virtual session will premiere on the Carson River Watershed YouTube Channel before 8am on their specified days. At 11:30am, CWSD will host a live Zoom Q & A session with the week’s speaker panel. More details on specific speakers and their topics will be provided in the next few weeks.

CWSD is hosting Watershed Wednesdays as a speaker series throughout March, instead of its typical 2-day Spring Carson River Watershed Forum. Speakers will include non-profit organizations, government agencies, private citizens, and landowners providing a comprehensive view of the morning’s topic. Participants can watch presentations on CWSD’s YouTube Channel as they premiere or can enjoy content at their leisure if unable to attend. Each Wednesday at 11:30am everyone is encouraged to sign on for the live Q&A hosted via Zoom to ask questions of our panel of Watershed experts.

Watershed Wednesdays will showcase the immense variety of work being planned and accomplished throughout the Carson River Watershed. “CWSD staff is working with our Carson River Coalition partners to create informative and educational sessions that move participants to act in ways that improve water quality and watershed health,” stated Brenda Hunt, CWSD Watershed Program Manager. Everyone is welcome to join us for Watershed Wednesdays and support our speakers, partners, and the comprehensive efforts being made to improve the Carson River Watershed.
