Join the CWP staff in Columbia, S.C. from September 22 - 25 for the 2009 Watershed Institute, an intensive, interesting, and interactive four-day learning experience. The Institute is specifically designed to help watershed professionals learn to: use field and desktop methods to complete a watershed plan from beginning to end; interpret real data and integrate findings into a watershed plan; apply practical methods in watershed professions, including specific project investigations, such as urban forestry and wetland assessments. The Institute is targeted for watershed leaders in local government, watershed groups, and consultants. Special characteristics of the Southeast will be covered, so those representing these areas will benefit the most from this Institute.
Professional Development Hours (CEUs) are available for the Institute and all classroom sessions will be held at the Clarion Hotel Downtown in Columbia, SC. The regular registration rate is $600 and the special discounted rate for non-profit organizations and government agencies is $350. The registration fee includes three and a half days of instruction; training materials; Continuing Education Units; lunch and break refreshments each day, and dinner on Thursday night.
