Published: February 11, 2013
The first Virginia Beach Watersheds Forum will be held on March 21, 2013 at the Vriginia Beach Convention Center.  Registration will begin at 8:15 AM and presentations begin at 9 AM.  The Forum is 9 AM-1 PM and includes a box lunch.

The Forum is being held jointly by Lynnhaven River NOW and the Backbay Restoration Foundation and is sponsored by the City of Virginia Beach and the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program.
The 2013 Forum will have two panel presentations from regional experts on adapting to Sea Level Rise and how our natural resorces fit into Virginia Beach's long range planning.

Additionally, break-out sessions for the northern and southern watersheds will feature speakers from VIMS, LRNow, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
Registration is $15 and includes light morning refreshments, a box lunch and all presentations.  Add-on workshops will be held at the close of the informational presentations from 1:00-2:30.

For an additional fee, participants can build their own rain barrel, learn about gardening with native plants and receive their own native plant, or build their own worm composting bin.
