Description: Description:     

Rivers worldwide continue to be among our most vital resources, providing drinking water, wastewater treatment, habitat, recreation, navigation, beauty, and more.  But too often they have been neglected and abused, or simply taken for-granted.  But now many communities are working to protect and restore our rivers and streams.  Learn how to join those efforts, by attending the keynote presentation by Bob Irvin, President and CEO of American Rivers, or hopefully stay for the full half day.  This meeting is presented jointly by the OSU Environmental Professionals Network and the Water Management Association of Ohio.
