The 10th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill is being marked with symposiums this week in Valdez and Anchorage.

The Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council, a federally chartered watchdog agency, is holding a two-day session today and Monday at the Valdez Civic Center. Featured speakers today include U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, who will speak on videotape, Agriculture Undersecretary Jim Lyons, and state Senate President Drue Pearce.

Gov. Tony Knowles will address the session Monday, as will Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. president Bob Malone. A panel that includes three former governors, Jay Hammond, Wally Hickel and Bill Sheffield, will discuss "How Oil Has Affected Alaska" at a Monday breakfast session.

A "Report to the Nation" symposium by the state-federal Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council begins Tuesday morning in Anchorage at the Egan Convention Center. The daylong events feature panels and speeches geared for the public, including a special noon keynote address on the state of the world's oceans by University of Oregon marine scientist Jane Lubchenco. A two-hour public reception at the Egan Center follows the end of the day's sessions at 5 p.m. Admission to the Tuesday sessions is free.

From Wednesday through Friday, the Trustee Council will host technical sessions into research conducted over the past 10 years and on future spill prevention and response. A $100 registration fee is required to attend the technical sessions.
