Celebrate 5 years of learning about the Patuxent River by joining us for a special FREE webinar series.
Every Thursday, beginning October 29 – November 19, from Noon to 1:00 p.m. we will be revisiting and discussing four topics which have been covered at prior Patuxent River Conferences. Please register for each webinar separately to receive details on how to join them.
We will reflect on the following topics:
November 5 – Importance of Wetlands in the Region: Join researchers from the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center to explore the role that wetlands play in maintaining healthy watersheds.
November 12 – Stream Ecology and Restoration: Let’s talk stormwater and how local communities are working to restore their streams and meet regulatory requirements
November 19 – Outreach and Advocacy for River Health: Spend an hour with the Patuxent and Anacostia Riverkeepers to learn how they engage communities in caring for their local waterways and advocate for improving the health of their rivers.

The Patuxent River Conference (PAXCON) is the premier forum uniting scientists, environmental educators, natural resource managers, and anyone passionate about the health and future of the Patuxent River. To know and understand the Patuxent River is to take one more step towards its protection. Many thanks to our donors and sponsors for making this virtual event possible! We look forward to returning to an in-person PAXCON event when it’s safe to do so.
