Since 1985, Clark Fork Basin citizens have met every 5 years on conservation science and actions in the basin.

At the 2015 Clark Fork River Symposium, the State of the River report will look back on 30 years of conservation progress (with a special focus on the last 5 years) and ahead to future challenges. Invited speakers and panels will address recent & ongoing studies guiding actions to conserve & restore the basin. Posters & short talks are invited from watershed groups, scientists, land & water managers, other citizens interested in the river basin. Field trips to watershed projects will also be featured.

The 2015 Symposium is held in coordination with the Clark Fork-Kootenai Task Force’s annual Climate/Water Supply Outlook forum on April 23, 2015 at the Holiday Inn in Missoula. The Symposium keynotes will be the evening of April 23 in UM’s Underground Lecture Hall. The technical sessions will be April 24 in UM’s Davidson Honors College and the University Center. Field trips will be in the afternoon on April 23 and April 24.
