XWN organizes an Annual peer-to-peer Workshop, hosted by a different watershed group each year. These workshops:

  • Foster peer-to-peer sharing through facilitated sharing sessions and collaborative problem solving.
  • Center on topics recommended by the XWN participants and relevant to the host watershed.
  • Include a field portion that allows attendees to explore projects in the host watershed.

In addition to the Annual Workshop, XWN Interactive Sessions at existing conferences. These include interactive problem-solving sessions, known as case clinics and breakout discussion groups. Keep an eye out for XWN at a conference near you!
