What is Oilapalooza? For any of you that have not heard of or attended an Oilapalooza before, it is the OWCN’s biennial conference usually held in rotating locations around the state of CA.

This year’s virtual conference will consist of lectures on a diverse range of spill response topics, followed by a virtual evening networking event that will allow our amazing responder community to connect and have some fun. The entire day will be hosted via Zoom. More detailed programmatic information, including the lecture topics and speakers, will be announced soon.
