    2017 Patuxent River Conference Early Bird Registration Ends Soon

    2017 Patuxent River Conference Early Bird Registration Ends November 6!

    The members of the planning team for the Patuxent River Conference are excited to announce that registration is now open for PAXCON 2017 which will take place Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, MD. The theme of this year’s conference is River Management Stories: Making the leap from information to application. With a schedule that includes in-depth science presentations, panel sessions, and roundtable discussions all framed around one of the main strands- invasive species management, living shorelines, stormwater best management practices and stream restoration the conference committee hopes participants will leave the conference not just with new knowledge about research relevant to the Patuxent River Watershed but also a network of colleagues that are inspired to take action to improve the river.

    Register today at http://www.paxcon.org/register.html . Early bird registration of $30 ends November 6th!

    Graduate Student Scholarships

    Recognizing the value, merit, and creativity of the next generation of Patuxent River stewards, the Conference Planning Committee warmly welcomes and strongly encourages student involvement and is offering two student scholarships. Recipients of student scholarships will receive a waived conference fee which includes access to all of the conference sessions, lunch, and assorted refreshments throughout the day. Scholarship applications will be accepted until October 15 and applicants will be notified of acceptance by October 31.

    Spread the Word
    We’re always looking to grow the network of people interested in learning more about the Patuxent River.  Please forward this email to colleagues, partners, and community members who may be interested in attending the conference.
