Lake Superior Watershed Stream Science Symposium
Interested in the latest data about the Lake Superior watershed and its streams? Researchers, resource managers, foresters and the general public are gathering to discuss regional water research on January 7 and 8, 2014 in the UMD Kirby Ballroom.
To help guide future research and management, participants will define stressors influencing the normal flow and function of Lake Superior's tributaries. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to incorporate scientific information and cost-effective methods into planning for and managing the Lake Superior watershed.
This symposium is funded in part by the Coastal Zone Management Act, NOAA's Office of Ocean and Coastal Resources Management and in cooperation with Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program. It is organized by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, USFS, EPA, Minnesota Sea Grant, Lake Superior Coldwater Coalition, Trout Unlimited, and Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development Council.
Cost: $65 per person by Jan. 1; $130 per person on or after Jan. 2. Cost includes lunch, breaks, and parking. Registration required. For more information and to register, see: http://www.lrcd.org/mn-lake-superior-watershed-stream-science-symposium.html.
