Wise Water Ways, North East Victoria, Australia
Wise Water Ways Workshops offer new and current waterways practitioners the opportunity to gather, discuss and learn from a wide range of Australian and overseas waterways experts, researchers and managers. Many of the workshop speakers present new research findings and developments, and offer their first hand experience in stream management.
The first Wise Water Ways Workshop held in 1999 followed a visit by internationally recognised fluvial geomorphologist, Dr Robert Newbury, who led a hands on field training program into water ways management. The Wise Water Ways Workshops have been held annually ever since. Now in its 16th year, the Wise Water Ways Workshop has delivered programs and shared knowledge with over 790 participants.
Each year, the Wise Water Ways Committee invites specialist researchers in water quality, macroinvertebrate and fish, as well as practical onground managers, to engage with participants and present their most recent findings at the five day workshop. The 2016 Wise Water Ways Workshop to be held in Beechworth, will be no exception. It is with delight we announce our 2016 Keynote Speaker, David Papps, Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder from Commonwealth Environmental Water Office.
Wise Water Ways Committee thanks all the high calibre speakers who donate their time in order to achieve the very best practice in waterways management.
