Watershed Symposia

The Oklahoma Water Resources Center organizes one-day symposia to bring together stakeholders from within a watershed to discuss current and future research and Extension needs in the watershed.

Past Symposia:

Illinois River Watershed Symposium
On September 25, 2014, we hosted our inaugural symposium with Arkansas Water Resources Center in the Illinois River watershed. The program included research and Extension presentations by representatives from both Oklahoma State University and the University of Arkansas, along with presentations by agency representatives on their activities in the watershed. One of the most important activities was a facilitated discussion on future research and Extension needs in the watershed. Find out more about the products of the symposium here.
