River-related work at the University of Minnesota

June 10, 2010Patrick NunnallyProgram & Announcements, Rivers, UncategorizedComments Off on River-related work at the University of Minnesota

Even though it is summer and the University has quieted down a lot, activity connected to rivers continues apace.


Look for entries in the next few weeks on:

  • “Experiments on Rivers:  the Consequences of Dams” a conference to be held in November 2010
  • continued research and outreach at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, located on Hennepin Island in the middle of the Mississippi in downtown Minneapolis
  • further development in the “Gopher Ranger” program that connects University students with the Mississippi through recreational and volunteer activities, academic efforts, and career-development programs.  There will be a reception for an extremely successful Gopher Ranger program “Imagining the Mississippi,” held in Mill City Museum on July 7.

More to follow–stay tuned!
