A daylong symposium will be held Friday in Paso Robles to discuss the future of the Salinas River.

The event will feature presentations by key policymakers, scientists, educators, landowners, farmers and ranchers. The speakers will come from the UC Cooperative Extension; The Nature Conservancy; Fresno State University; the Monterey County Resource Management District; and the Grower-Shipper Association of the Central Coast.

“The purpose of this symposium is to build a team of stakeholders with diverse backgrounds and interests to establish a framework for moving forward on joint conservation and management projects for the Salinas River,” said Devin Best, executive director of the Upper-Salinas-Las Tablas Resource Conservation District, one of the event’s sponsors.

The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Paso Robles Inn. Registration is $115 and includes breakfast and lunch. For information, call 548-0597.
