Quoting from the brochure, "Yes, you've been to nonpoint source
meetings/workshops/conferences, etc., before, but never like this
one. We've rounded up some of the best authorities, leaders, and
practitioners of environmental sustainability in the country to
present their personal interpretation of environmental
sustainability in the context of nonpoint source water pollution.
Whether your focus is on urban issues, agricultural issues or
human dimensions of nonpoint soruce management, you won't
want to miss this.
"Our theme, toward achieving a sustainable environment, reflects
a long range vision of what can be accomplished in reducing
nonpoint source pollution by integrating available resources and
expertise into shared efforts toward common goals. The workshop
is designed with inter-related lectures, field trips and hands-on
workshops to let you "hear it, seeit, do it". Most important of all is
the opportunity to share face-to-face the experience of what works,
what doesn't and why with veteran project sponsors.
"Of course, you'll miss allthis (and we'll probably talk about you) if
you don't show up. So register today. You'll be glad you did"
Elbert Traylor, Chairman
