Riparian Summit 2017 Confluence to Influence will be held at the University of California, Davis Alumni Conference Center on October 17-19, 2017. The 3-day Summit provides an opportunity to share knowledge from multiple communities on the science, community values, and strategies for managing, protecting, and restoring California’s riparian corridors. It will feature plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, an art and science component, and opportunities for field activities.

Goals of the Riparian Summit:

Despite well recognized contributions of riparian ecosystems to the natural capital of California’s ecosystems, much of the original riparian habitat of California has been heavily modified or lost. With that loss has come a loss of the ecological and hydrological integrity, resilience, and productivity of riparian systems, including reduction in water supplies and quality of life in riparian dependent communities.

With the state preparing to make major investments in green infrastructure, riparian restoration and its natural infrastructure should be a major focus for effective public investment. The goals of the Summit are to share emerging understanding of riparian processes, to identify priorities and opportunities for investment, and to highlight contributions of riparian corridors to natural capital, the arts, and human well-being throughout California.
