Get connected, find support, and be inspired
Feeling isolated? Don’t want to recreate the wheel? The Confluence is a place to connect with and learn from people just like you, who are doing work to improve water quality and watershed health.
Build your network and knowledge base through the following opportunities, which are organized by The Confluence or its partners. Currently, these opportunities are targeted at watershed professionals, but our vision includes the eventual creation of opportunities for farmers and landowners too.
