The 2020 Poudre River Forum Draft Agenda Now Available

The Poudre River Forum, an initiative of the Poudre Runs Through It Study/Action Work Group (PRTI), brings together those on the Poudre who farm, deliver clean potable water, drink beer, recreate, and advocate for river health to learn from one another and to explore how we can move from conflict to collaboration. Join us for this year’s event to engage with other Poudre River enthusiasts, take in over 20 educational displays, and help us honor our 2020 Poudre Pioneer awardee!

This year’s program includes topics that dive into water quality challenges in the Poudre Basin including:

  • Historical water quality perspectives
  • Water quality controls and tradeoffs
  • Ecosystem impacts on water quality
  • Municipal, agricultural, and environmental perspectives on water quality

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Josh Goldstein, Director of the Bridge Collaborative. The Bridge Collaborative is a partnership between the Nature Conservancy, Duke University, the International Food Policy Research Institute, and PATH whose mission focuses on shifting how we think, plan, fund, and work across all sectors to make a greater impact on solving our critical challenges.

View all of our speakers and topics here and stay tuned for more details soon!
