Our community has grown once again, so this year’s conference will be held in a new venue! With space for everyone, we hope you will join us to learn, network and become inspired to restore our waterways.  Whether you are a seasoned Steward, a stormwater professional or just getting started in the wide world of watershed restoration, this year’s conference has something for everyone.

This year we’ll start the day with the Annual Steward Action Summit and Breakfast.  Aside from a delicious way to start a Saturday, this session is exclusively for Certified Master Watershed Stewards and Steward Candidates and will focus on tools and updates created just for Stewards.

New this year is an expanded Gallery and Exhibit Walk, which includes vendors, Funder Office Hours, Ask an Expert, an update on the GIS mapping application, interactive engagement activities and more!

Our conference will open with a keynote address from OpinionWorks’ Steve Raabe detailing the results of a recent Bay-wide survey of citizen stewardship behaviors.  Steve will unpack trends across the watershed and give a glimpse of how citizens in Anne Arundel County compare.
