7th Conference on Natural Channels Systems: Sunday June 25 – Wednesday June 28, 2023
Balancing Driving and Resisting Forces to Achieve Project Goals
The Countdown to the 2023 Natural Channels Conference Is On!
Join us in Guelph, Ontario, June 25-28 for the the 7th Conference on Natural Channels Systems
The first Natural Channel Systems conference was held in Niagara Falls in 1994. The key message conveyed at that conference was that the erosion and water quality problems we have in our watercourses are a disease and the technological solutions we throw at them are drugs intended to deal with the symptoms. This message still holds true today.
At the core of the Natural Channel Initiative is to manage our watercourses to be naturally functional, dynamically stable, healthy, productive, sustainable, to deal with the fundamental root cause of issues, and to work with the natural processes taking place within our river systems.
