About the Event
On September 27th, 2018, the Council for Watershed Health and LA Sanitation will host the State of the LA River Watershed Symposium and convene elected officials, non-profit organizations, community-based organizations, academics, agency scientists, and land managers to identify actionable next steps for creating a healthy and resilient watershed. At the 2013 Symposium, Mayor Garcetti welcomed more than 200 participants to learn about the health of the LA River Watershed and shared his vision for a revitalized LA River. The 2018 Symposium will reflect on what we’ve accomplished, the important work that remains, and focus on fostering collaboration among diverse stakeholders in achieving shared goals.
Council for Watershed Health (CWH), LA Sanitation, and the City of Burbank have monitored the LA River for 10 years. CWH will share the comprehensive story of the river’s condition, which includes water quality, habitat assessment, and aquatic health. Understanding long-term monitoring data and the historical context that has shaped the River and its hydrology as we see it today is foundational to making decisions that enhance ecological and community health. Panel discussions will create an opportunity for lively dialogue focused on identifying gaps in research, data, and regional efforts. The Symposium will conclude with actionable next steps that will serve to reinvigorate efforts in the region.
We are standing at a point in time of great opportunity with unprecedented investment in LA River revitalization. Join us for a bold conversation as we synthesize the past, present and future of the Los Angeles River.
