Home to three rivers and 446 bridges, Pittsburgh is known as “The City of Bridges.” These bridges play an important role in connecting the valleys, hillsides, river plains, and communities. This city of linkages sets the stage for connections around eight general conservation research and practice topics. Specialty tracks will foster dialogue surrounding unique partnerships in watershed planning and implementation, engagement of the private sector in conservation, and the challenges of adapting the landscape to a changing climate.
Paths to meet current soil and water conservation needs look very different from the solutions that galvanized action
after the Dust Bowl, and they will continue to evolve. Come to Pittsburgh and be part of that shared conservation future.
