2022 Waccamaw Conference

Join us for a week of activities during the 2022 Waccamaw Conference from March 20 through March 26. Our theme this year is CWA@50: 50 years of the Clean Water Act. The Clean Water Act is a federal policy to prevent, reduce, and eliminate pollution in our waterways. Since 1972, the Act has restricted pollution entering our waterways to ensure fishable, swimmable, and drinkable water. After 50 years, we celebrate our accomplishments, review the current state of our waters, and determine the next steps to protect clean water in our watershed.

The Conference will feature virtual events, a keynote speaker presentation, outdoor activities, and interactive competitions. Join us during the week of World Water Day in exploring how the Clean Water Act has impacted our waterways over the past 50 years and what can be done to continue our clean water legacy on the Waccamaw.

The Waccamaw Conference is an annual educational conference for the public focused on the importance of our natural water resources and efforts to protect them. The 2022 conference is co-hosted by the Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® Program of Winyah Rivers Alliance, North Inlet – Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, and Waccamaw Watershed Academy. This FREE community conference is open to all and we hope you will join us for this celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act.
