Keeping up with the Waterkeeper

Monthly Community Event  |  Sandpoint, ID

Hosted by Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper

Learn about what’s happening in our watershed

Keeping up with the Waterkeeper (KUWTW) is a monthly presentation that is open to the public where LPOW staff and agency representatives discuss topics pertaining to our watershed. For each event, we provide a short presentation with an overview of the topic followed by an open discussion. In addition, we prepare an article each month with details about the upcoming topic. These articles are available to read on our “In the News” page

Please note that due to the presence of COVID in our community, we would like to encourage attendees to follow CDC guidelines on social distancing and masks. Seating will be spaced out and folks are welcome to move chairs around to their comfort levels. We will have free single use masks available.

We were unable to record our February and March 2022 events, so as an alternative we have provided our PowerPoint presentations as PDFs. To view the slides, click on the images below. For more information, contact Carolyn at


Free and open to anyone!

Keeping up with the Waterkeeper is free and all are welcome to attend! Events are hosted in-person with online options available via Zoom. Presentations are recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
