St. Louis River Summit Feb 7-8, 2011

Please join us at the St. Louis River Estuary Summit on February 7-8, 2011 in the Grand Hall of the Yellowjacket Union on the Campus of the University of Wisconsin, Superior.

Research Scientists and Resource Managers working on the lower St. Louis River will share data, collaborate on common goals, learn about cutting edge research and monitoring, and discuss how this work can benefit the overall management of the Area of Concern.

The first day will begin at 1:00 p.m. with presentations addressing major ecological, social, and economic drivers and will conclude with a poster session and networking reception. The reception will include refreshments courtesy of the newly designated Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve.

Day two begins with check in at 8:30 a.m. and will run through 3:30 p.m.
Lunch tickets to the Yellowjacket cafeteria will be provided for those who pre-register. The agenda for the second day includes oral presentations to summarize our current understanding of issues and opportunities as well as activities to draw out new information and identify areas for collaboration. The day will close with a discussion of follow-up opportunities for coming together and staying together.

Contact Pat Collins at for registration information. Please also feel free to share this invitation with others who may wish to attend.

Please bring your own name tag or one recycled from a previous meeting to use at the summit.
