FRIENDS OF THE LOWER WI RIVERWAY (FLOW): State of the Lower WI River Symposium

Purpose

Friends of the Lower Wisconsin River will facilitate the gathering of stakeholders, cultural and natural resource experts and agency staff to share scientific and technical information and perspectives on the Lower Wisconsin River via symposiums and field trips. The focus will be to build capacity in the Lower Wisconsin River region through on "the state of the river", as a first step that describes the area's natural and cultural resources, their interrelationships and management issues, for a fairly broad audience. It will encourage pathways of communication through which discussions of these topics might continue, and increase much-needed awareness in the more general public, through media coverage. Project Deliverables: Symposiums and field trips (several in summer and fall) will culminate in a compilation of presentations, summaries/abstracts. Attendee surveys will rate success of limitations of symposiums and field trips. Symposium will be publicized in local newspapers, and on FLOW\2019s website. Flow will also partner with various conservation organizations to promote events. Photo exhibits during symposiums.
