2020 WALPA Virtual Conference
October 14 - October 16
This year’s virtual WALPA conference will be held October 14th through 16th. For the first time, you can participate from the comfort of your own home!
Our theme this year, which is “Lake Diversity from Ponds to Reservoirs” was chosen to highlight the vast range of waters that we manage, use for recreation, and love. There are so many ways to enjoy lakes, and promoting the health of lake ecosystems results in better experiences and more enjoyment for both us and their inhabitants. We are welcoming abstracts from everyone on a wide variety of lake topics, honoring our inclusiveness theme by honoring your interests, work programs, and research on lakes and their watersheds. You may submit an abstract for either a presentation or poster HERE, with a deadline of August 17th for your initial proposal. Sessions will be crafted based on the submissions we receive, but have generally included topics such as recent noxious weeds updates, nutrient and pollution reduction reports, problem algae information and recent research, and watershed impacts on lake food webs.
The photo contest will be back again this year in a slightly different form: this year’s submissions will be featured on our website! Send us your best pictures of the amazing lakes you enjoy and manage.
