River Access and Recreational Opportunities

June 15th, 2017  - 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM - RIT Campus


Genesee RiverWatch is hosting its 4th Annual Genesee River Basin Summit on June 15, 2017 in the Louise Slaughter Building on the Rochester Institute of Technology Campus.  The topic is "River Access and Recreational Opportunities." The Summit is open to the public. Please join us!  


Our region is blessed with an abundance of water assets. But those assets are underutilized especially the Genesee River and its tributaries. The purpose of this year's Summit is to review the current state of river access and recreational use, understand the benefits associated with increasing these opportunities and plan for how we can move forward to benefit our citizens and the local economy. The Summit will be broken down into four sessions.

  1. Available River Access - Presentations will review available river and tributary access opportunities and maps.
  2. Available Recreational Opportunities - Experts will discuss the boating, fishing, hiking and biking opportunities available.
  3. Why is it Important? - This series of presentations will explore various perspectives on why recreation and access is important to regional tourism and the economy.
  4. What Can or Should Be Done? - This session will look at what kinds of projects and programs are in the works across the basin and solicit feedback from the attendees on a path forward.
