Conference summary: This 2 ˝ day symposium will feature a plenary session, concurrent sessions, and a poster session focused on the research, management, collaboration, and issues facing California to both prevent and manage floods and conserve, protect, and restore riparian habitat across the State. The symposium will provide a forum for natural resource scientists and managers, flood management experts and managers, landowners and conservancies, regulatory agencies, and policy makers to exchange ideas and perspectives and identify the critical issues that will need integration and cooperation to resolve into the future. Major themes of the 2007 symposium include flood control and protection; habitat, species, and natural community conservation; protecting and sustaining agriculture; and the health and safety of urban communities.
The concurrent sessions will be designed to provide both the issues and solutions for the many important topics that revolve around flood management and the conservation of riparian areas and the ecological processes and biological communities that occur in these areas. The focus for each session will be to emphasize and promote the integration of conservation and flood management and the roles of private land owners, cities, counties, special districts, agricultural and water industries, state and federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations in achieving this integration.
