This year’s forum will be taking place at the Palm Springs Renaissance Hotel and Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, California, August 19-22, 2019.
This year’s forum will feature special trainings, field trips, and breakout sessions focused on the conference theme: A National Conversation on Tribal Land and Water Resources . Topics highlighted include solid/hazardous waste management, brownfields, UST/LUSTs, Superfund sites, and emergency response. Tribal water program topics – water quality, drinking water, and habitat restoration (including wetlands, streams and fisheries) will also be included with breakout sessions, trainings and field trips. Plenty of networking opportunities will also be offered, making this a terrific event for tribal professionals, federal staff, nonprofit and industry personnel, and students of environmental sciences and Native American Studies, to connect with their colleagues who are also protecting the environment and their communities.
