Watersheds face resource impacts driven by accelerated change related to land use, population, and climate. About every three years a conference is held to bring together watershed researchers, observers, and managers to share scientific advances and management strategies. For the Fourth Interagency Conference on Research in the Watersheds, we will take a national perspective on watershed science, and will also examine some pressing issues of watershed science and management in our largest and perhaps most vulnerable state, Alaska. The purpose of the conference is to better understand the processes driving change and help managers incorporate societal needs and scientific uncertainty in the management of natural resources. Please join us in Fairbanks September 26-30, 2011, for this next big step in sharing information about work in watersheds.
