14th Annual River Symposium!
Do not miss out on the Annual Susquehanna River Symposium on October 18 and 19 in the Langone Center at Bucknell University. This free and public event has been put on by the Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment. The goal of this symposium is to bring together many people in order to discuss research, innovative projects, share ideas and increase awareness about the health of the river and the communities within the watershed. Last year’s event was comprised of over 100 students and faculty from 22 colleges and universities.
"The symposium brings together academics, consultants, state, federal, and regional agencies, conservation groups, and the public to discuss ongoing scientific research and innovative projects, to share ideas, and to increase awareness of the connection between river health and the communities within our watersheds. Its presentations and breakout discussions explore various management and sustainability issues facing the mid-Atlantic region today," said Watershed Sciences & Engineering program director Dr. Benjamin R. Hayes.
"One of its primary goals is to draw together people from all walks of life who share a common interest in rivers, watersheds, communities, and the connections therein. It offers a time and a place where the public can interact with academics, professionals, and regulators, all working toward the same goal - a sustainable Susquehanna and Chesapeake Bay." The Pennsylvania Water Resource Research Center is also a proud supporter of this symposium.
