NBWA 2020 Conference CANCELLED

April 3, 2020

Event Series Event Series (See All)


Date: March 10th.

To all our friends and colleagues,

The North Bay Watershed Conference, previously scheduled for April 3, 2020, has been canceled.

Cancellation was not an easy decision. However, we have reviewed information from Bay Area Counties’ Public Health Departments and consulted with Association member agencies, and determined that it is important to exercise caution and to respect audience concerns regarding non-essential large public gatherings.

The North Bay Watershed Association looks forward to hosting our much-anticipated Conference at a future date. We thank you all for your interest in this event and for your understanding now as we make this difficult decision to cancel.

We are especially grateful to all our generous sponsors for their past and ongoing support.
