2016 Tribal Lands & Environment ForumWe are very excited to once again offer the annual Tribal Lands and Environment Forum (TLEF). This year’s forum will be taking place at:
Mohegan Sun Resort
August 15-18, 2016
Once again, the forum will feature special trainings, field trips, and breakout sessions focused on solid/hazardous waste management, brownfields, UST/LUSTs, Superfund sites, and emergency response. This will also be the second time we include breakout sessions, trainings and field trips related to tribal water programs – water quality, drinking water, and habitat restoration (including wetlands, streams and fisheries).
On this website you will find information on registering for the forum, making hotel reservations, navigating transportation options, securing vendor/exhibitor tables, and the forum draft agenda. You may also access presentations and agendas from past forums.
NEW THIS YEAR: On Wednesday, August 17, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm we will be organizing a special “Multi-Media Meetup” session at the TLEF. This is an opportunity for tribes, federal agencies, private companies, students, non-governmental organizations, and other entities to set up information tables, display posters, and share information on their activities. This special networking opportunity will allow all the TLEF attendees to gather together and learn more about exciting projects occurring around the country. For more information on how to participate in this new event, click on the Multi-Media Meetup Tab.
We will be continually updating this website, so be sure to check back often. We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 TLEF!
