ELLICOT CITY, MD, Feb. 28, 2006 -- The Center for Watershed Protection (CWP) will be a presenter at National River Rally 2006. The event will be held May 5-9 in Bretton Woods, NH, at the Mount Washington Hotel.

Join CWP at River Rally for a special mini-Watershed Institue, a track focusing on various field and desktop methods for watershed assessment. It will cover CWP's basic suite of field methods including the USA, USSR, and retrofit inventory, and introduce some new training modules on estimating pollutant loads, developing a local wetland inventory, and conducting a leaf out analysis.
