Our Watershed Moment, Building Communities for Conservation

The 16th annual Iowa Water Conference will be held on September 28 and 29, 2022 in Dubuque, Iowa.

We all live in unique watersheds, and the Mississippi River Basin watershed is the foundation for a large, diverse community. It affects the use and resiliency of many of this country’s natural resources. Many individuals and groups throughout the region have stories to tell of the impact the river has had on their lives and how they are mitigating the impacts of climate change.

The conference will emphasize the influence the river has had on neighboring communities, agriculture, recreation, and ecology, as well as examine the roles Iowa and other bordering states have in protecting it.

This year’s theme focuses on the importance that watershed citizenship has in making strides towards improving soil health and water quality goals in our communities and watersheds.
