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!
