3rd Annual Citizen Stream Monitoring Symposium

For the third year, River Alliance of Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-Extension and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources are hosting a statewide gathering for citizen stream monitors, local program coordinators and others interested in volunteer stream monitoring.

The Symposium is an opportunity to network with other citizen monitors and DNR, UWEX and university staff.

Symposium highlights:

  • Hear examples of how your data are being used by DNR and Universities
  • Learn about the natural resource data counties need and how to make the right connections in your county to help protect and restore streams and rivers
  • Learn about fish of Wisconsin's sloughs from retired DNR biologist Dave Marshall
  • Learn how to obtain data reports and site maps using online tools
  • Share your program with others through a poster session

Poster Session

We highly encourage you to bring a poster or table top display highlighting your organization's water quality monitoring program and this season's results. We have set aside time at the beginning of the Symposium for everyone to network and view the posters and displays. We ask that you set up your poster or display by 9am. Groups that bring a poster or display will be entered in a drawing for a TidBit thermistor donated by the Onset Corporation. There is no charge to exhibit. Simply indicate on your registration form if you plan to bring a table top display or poster.
