MN LAKE SUPERIOR WATERSHED STREAM SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 9:00 AM - Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at 8:30 AM (CST)
This symposium will bring researchers and resource managers together to share current relevant research and help create a shared strategic vision for the future watershed health and management of Lake Superior Tributaries, and do this within the State Watershed Management Framework.
Researchers and managers will:
- present the latest Lake Superior stream and watershed research;
- share data and data gaps, and
- discuss management issues and objectives.
Participants will identify and prioritize the most important stressors on Lake Superior tributaries. These priorities will help direct future research, management, funding, and decisions on wise use of limited resources to best benefit tributaries. In addition, the symposium will provide guidance for planners, managers and coastal communities on incorporating scientific information and cost-effectiveness into planning and management decisions that maintain or improve watershed health and biotic integrity.
This two full day event will start at 9:00 am on Tuesday January 7th, and at 8:30 am Wednesday January 8th. The event will end by 5:00 pm each day. Registration includes lunch and refreshments on both days.
Note registrants will be able to pick up tickets at the registration table on the day of the event. Free parking at the UMD Library Lot. Follow the signs to the Kirby Ballroom.
