The Ecohydrology Research Group, with support from the Water Institute, presents a full-day research symposium featuring talks by coastal ecologists, watershed model developers, and environmental policy researchers with experience working in Europe and North America.
All members of the public are invited to attend the symposium. Pre-registration is now closed; however, you may still attend. Our information/registration desk will be available from 8:30 until noon at the Ron Eydt Village main entrance (near the front desk and adjacent to the stairs to the Great Hall). Complimentary refreshments will be provided during the morning and afternoon breaks while supplies last.
Location: Great Hall, Ron Eydt Village, University of Waterloo campus

Where to eat
We will be providing refreshments at 8:30 and during breaks. Note, however, that the REV cafeteria is closed for a catered working lunch with delegates participating in a workshop the following day. Mudie’s, the V1 cafeteria, is a 5 minute walk (**they take cash or Watcard only). The SLC has lunch options as well and is about a 10-minute walk from REV (they take cash & debit).
Where to park
If you are planning to drive, you will want to park in Lot S or V (the pay-and-display parking machine for both lots is located in Lot S; it takes exact cash ($5) or credit card).
