3rd Annual State of the San Lorenzo River Symposium

The City of Santa Cruz Water Department, the County of Santa Cruz, the Coastal Watershed Council, the Resource Conservation District, and the San Lorenzo Valley Water District will host the third annual State of the San Lorenzo River Symposium on Saturday, March 4, 2017. Join local experts as they present on the science, history, and policies related to flow. Flow in the San Lorenzo River Watershed is critical to our local drinking water supplies and wildlife. Learn the importance of flow to special status fish species, how flow has changed overtime, and how flow relates to groundwater, climate change and more. Keynote speaker John Laird, California Secretary for Natural Resources, will close the event with a talk about State and Federal policies and ramifications for restoring the San Lorenzo River Watershed.
The event is free and will be held in the Louden Nelson Community Center Multipurpose Room from 10:00a.m. – 1:00p.m.
An interactive tour, part of the Exploring the San Lorenzo River Series led by the Coastal Watershed Council and the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History will be offered immediately following the symposium. Participants of all ages are welcome to join us in exploring fish in the lower San Lorenzo River. The tour will begin at 1:15. You can sign up for the Mar 4 tour below.
