The Puyallup River Watershed Council is excited to announce that we will be hosting the annual Puyallup Watershed Symposium on Thursday, December 7, 2023 from 1pm-6pm.  The Puyallup Watershed Symposium is a free event where you can learn about or share information about research, environmental justice, and other work occurring in the Puyallup River watershed (WRIA 10).  This event will be in-person and will take place at the Point Defiance Pagoda.

We invite those doing work in the Puyallup River watershed to submit an abstract for an oral presentation (15-20 min) or poster that targets one or more of the focus areas in the Puyallup-White River Ecosystem Recovery Plan (ERP).  You must present in person at the event.

The focus areas are:

  •       Equity and Human Wellbeing
  •       Climate Change
  •       Salmon
  •       Estuaries
  •       Floodplains
  •       Forests
  •       Farms and Agricultural Lands
  •       Stormwater and Water Quality


The full ERP can be found at Puyallup-White River Local Integrating Organization – Ecosystem Recovery Plan.
