H2O Conference 2013
11th Annual H2O Conference
May 28-30, 2013
Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa on Mission Bay
San Diego, California
The 2013 Headwaters to Ocean (H2O) Conference organizers are the California Shore and Beach Preservation Association, the California Coastal Coalition, the Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project, the Society of Wetland Scientists - Western Chapter, and the Tijuana River National Estuarine
Research Reserve Coastal Training Program.
Each year's H2O Conference consists of roughly 100 presentations with the latest information relating to coasts, oceans, beaches, wetlands, rivers and watersheds. This year's program is very strong. It is available online here.
PowerPoint presentations from previous H2O conferences, dating back to 2003, are posted here.
Due to budget constraints in public and private sectors, the H2O Conference registration fee has remained the same for several years. You may register online here.
Based on positive feedback the conference organizers received from presenters, attendees, sponsors and exhibitors regarding the meeting space, exhibit area and other aspects of the venue for last year's conference, the 2013 H2O Conference will be held at the same hotel. Click here for information regarding the conference hotel and to make your room reservation online. The hotel is offering the same low rates as last year, but discounted room rates may not be available after May 8th.
