In 2017 and 2018, the Jackson Purchase Foundation partnered with the Watershed Studies Institute at Murray State University and the City of Murray to host the Four Rivers Watershed Sustainabilty Summit to celebrate our abundant water resources that are so important to our history and region, and learn about local projects to improve and protect our water resources. The event included educational seminars, booths and demonstrations throughout the day. Click on the links below to see presentations from past summits.
