The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and Kentucky Waterways Alliance, invites the public and stakeholders to attend the Green River Summit on February 20 and 21at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. The Summit is designed to gather input to improve the Green River Watershed, one of the nation’s premier natural resources.
“We want to put out the word for critical stakeholders, those who are active in the watershed, as well as experts in the field to attend this free event,” said Nate Moulder, Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District project planner. “We are extending an open invitation to participate in our future planning efforts as we work toward a shared vision for the Green River Watershed.”
The Summit will bring together a broad representation from non-governmental organizations, federal agencies, state and local agencies, private landowners, industry, academia and community representatives. The Summit will function as a platform to further the exchange of information regarding progress and barriers/constraints on current projects, programs and activities.
Information compiled through the Summit and a study assessment will be synthesized into a watershed plan, which will detail recommendations for sustainable projects, policy, guidelines and initiatives that support the future ecological sustainability of the Green River Watershed.
There is no fee for the Summit, but attendees need to register.
