Black River Watershed Conference

The Black River Watershed Conference is held in June every year.  Stakeholders (municipal officials, municipal boards, agency representatives and interested citizens) have the opportunity to learn about and discuss issues that face the Black River and its watershed, as well as how to become better stewards of the Black River.  Networking is encouraged and everyone is welcome!

In 2018, the Conference will be held at Camp Turk in Oneida County on Tuesday June 12!
