2022 International Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Forum will take place virtually this coming March.

Virtual Forum dates: March 9 (12:00 noon to 5 pm) and March 10 (8:30 am to 5:10 pm)

Overview: Professional symposium for research and resource managers, policy makers and the public interested in the Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed

Themes: Water Governance, State of the Basin, Nutrients, Monitoirng, Emerging Issues and Technologies.  
Each session will be followed by a moderated town hall style Q&A discussions

Virtual Structure: We are aiming to have the presentation sessions as close to the traditional oral presentations of the Forum with as much interaction as possible.  Like last year, the Forum will be held virtually as a Zoom Webinar, due to continued uncertainty about cross border travel. 

  • Presentations will be pre-recorded to minimize possibility of technical issues during the sessions. We will be providing presenters technical instructions and facilitation to help with the recording.
  • During the Forum, presentations will be streamed during themed sessions and followed by moderated live question and answer discussion with the authors.   
  • Forum attendees will also be able to submit questions directly using the Zoom Q&A feature.
