This two day symposium will bring researchers and resource managers together to share current relevant research and help create a shared strategic vision for the future watershed health and management of Lake Superior Tributaries, and do this within the State Watershed Management Framework.
Participants will identify and prioritize the most important stressors on Lake Superior tributaries. These priorities will help direct future research, management, funding, and decisions on wise use of limited resources to best benefit tributaries. In addition, the symposium will provide guidance for planners, managers and coastal communities on incorporating scientific information and cost-effectiveness into planning and management decisions that maintain or improve watershed health and biotic integrity.
