Maryland Water Monitoring Council Annual Conference
December 3 @ 9:00 am - December 24 @ 12:00 pmFree
In an examination of the world in which we currently live, one can’t help but see how interconnected the health of the environment is with the lives and health of the people living in its midst. Our 2020 theme, Clean Waters, Healthy Humans: The Environment Rx, is an exploration of that link. Concurrent sessions will include Streams 101, Clean Waters and Healthy Humans, Blue Carbon and Near-Shore Sequestration, Chesapeake Bay Water Quality, Data Gaps and How to Handle Them, Chesapeake Bay TMDL, PFAS, and Stream Restoration.
The morning plenary session on December 3 will feature a presentation by Dr. Rita Colwell, Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University and former director of the National Science Foundation. On Friday, December 4 the plenary session will feature a presentation from Congressman John Sarbanes, co-chair of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Caucus and author of the No Child Left Inside Act. Come join your friends and colleagues in celebrating 26 years of the MWMC!

The Maryland Water Monitoring Council has decided to waive registration fees for the 2020 Annual Conference. Many organizations are currently restricted in their ability to pay for conference attendance, and in the interest of serving our community’s needs, we are allowing free access to the conference for all who register by November 25 at noon or until we meet our capacity, whichever occurs first. Register today!
Again, all registration will close on November 25 at noon. Registration is on a first come-first served basis. The past few conferences have sold out. Walk-in registrations will not be accepted.
