Mark your calendar to join us for a gathering of passionate riparian people!  The Remarkable Riparian Summit presents a new opportunity to Map the Future for Functional Creeks & Rivers in Texas.


Hosted by the Nueces River Authority (NRA), the Summit will kick off with presentations by the National Riparian Service Team who will focus on the importance and ecological values of riparian resources, share their experience from other states, and provide an overview of the riparian movement shaping up around the country. 


Sky Jones-Lewey, NRA's Resource Protection and Education Director, will highlight the Riparian Landowners' Network program with an overview of the principles and practices that led to a successful effort in the Nueces River basin.


Following a provided lunch, the afternoon will center on facilitated roundtable discussions that will contribute to the development and growth of a thriving riparian movement in Texas. The resulting ideas, strategies and actions will be compiled in a proceedings document for distribution to agencies, educational institutions, and policy-makers around the state.


The Remarkable Riparian Summit is a free event thanks to our sponsors:  Dixon Water Foundation, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, River Systems Institute at Texas State University, LCRA, SARA, GBRA, Guadalupe Blanco River Trust, John Newman Family Charitable Trust of the San Antonio Area Foundation, Shield-Ayres Foundation, Save the Laja, Inc. honoring Susan Porter Smith, Braun & Gresham, Land Water Sky, Texas Riparian Association and Hill Country Alliance.


The event is free, but space is limited.
