River and Stream Restoration: Not Magic or Rocket Science

January 14, 2013Patrick NunnallyProgram & AnnouncementsComments Off on River and Stream Restoration: Not Magic or Rocket Science

It may seem like magic to see a stream restored to its former glory, or something close to its former state.  Fish return, clear ripples emerge where before there was just brown sludge before; the water is a place where you want to be again.

The Partnership for River Restoration and Science in the Upper Midwest (PRRSUM) is dedicated to sharing knowledge about precisely what tools work to make these transformations happen.  Learn more at the PRRSUM web site.

This is not just a random post this morning:  this week is the last week for submittal of poster abstracts and to register for the upcoming Stream Restoration Conference.  The conference will be held in LaCrosse WI this year, February 24-27.  Don’t miss out–lots of cutting-edge paper presentations, keynote talks by nationally-recognized experts, plus, my favorite, “Adjourn for dinner and drinks” sessions!
