Please join us Saturday, April 8th, for CSI’s 13th Annual Volunteer Symposium. The theme of this year’s Symposium will be Citizen Science and the Management of Local Water Resources. It will be held at the Tompkins County Public Library, East Green Street, Ithaca, NY, from 12:00 – 3:00 in the Borg Warner room.
Once again, we will be celebrating our volunteers and their indispensable efforts on behalf of the health of their watersheds and communities. Whether you’re a new volunteer, or have attended every Symposium, it is a great opportunity to meet other CSI volunteers and supporters and hear highlights from the past year of water quality monitoring activities. In addition, we have an outstanding panel of speakers presenting on a range of topics.
Tentative titles include:
– Steve Penningroth, Executive Director
Overview of CSI’s monitoring programs and a look at what’s to come in 2017
– Claire Weston, Outreach Coordinator
What we do and why we do it
– Statements from active volunteers
Volunteer contributions to managing the gas storage facility at Harford Mills
– Mark Witmer, Town of Caroline Supervisor, Red Flag Volunteer
Members, volunteers, and supporters of CSI are invited to join us for a light lunch starting at noon before the public event begins at 1:00 pm. If you have not yet sent an RSVP for lunch and would like to attend – that is no problem, there is still time! Thank you if you have already replied.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, April 8th!
