Palouse Basin Watershed Summit

Last month I mentioned the upcoming Palouse Basin Watershed Summit, which has historically been held in early October.  It appears that it will be held a little later this year, probably October 19, at the Schweitzer Event Center in Pullman. Look for more information in next month’s Update.
