Summit participants and guests have an opportunity to see first-hand what can be done to improve landscapes impacted by historic mining. Building on the themes discussed during the AML Summit, participants will discuss how the nuances of site characterization, project planning, success metrics and stakeholder collaboration led to successful outcomes at each site.

Some walking and light hiking will be involved at some locations, so please come prepared and dress accordingly (sturdy close-toed shoes, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc.).
