The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay’s 17th Annual Chesapeake Watershed Forum will be held in person at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV, November 4 – 6, 2022. This watershed-wide event reaches over 400 restoration and protection practitioners to inspire and empower local action towards clean water. We share successful tools and techniques, offer lessons and learnings from on-the-ground work, build capacities of local organizations, foster partnerships, educate on new initiatives and emerging practices, network, and celebrate our successes. 

The forum quickly sold out this year. Did you miss the opportunity to register? While we are excited to have so many join us, we recognize there are some that will not be able to be there. 

As part of our commitment to be accessible to all, we are offering a selection of hybrid sessions at this year’s event. Live-stream from the comfort of your office or home. Access to this year’s virtual content is free with registration.
