The meaning behind our conference logo
In the theme of ‘Valuing Our Shared Waters’, this logo embodies the idea of unity and connectivity represented by the hydrologic cycle and the storm hydrograph. As the storm flows between the green, yellow, and orange, it is flowing through the changing seasons, through the prairies, taiga, and tundra; it is flowing between boundaries. The lines used are primarily curvilinear and soft, continuous in the way they interconnect and flow together, as we observe it to be in the natural world.
