The fourth Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology
Date: 5/31/2017 - 6/3/2017
Location(s): North Carolina
Description: The Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology is a meeting of ecologists held approximately every four-five years aiming to further the scientific study of stream ecosystems in urban landscapes. Held in Browns Summit, North Carolina, the 4th symposium’s theme is overcoming common barriers to catchment scale management and rehabilitation of urban streams through productive conversations among academics and professionals from the fields of stream ecology, engineering, management, planning and design, and the social sciences. Through a highly interactive format, attendees will work in groups focused on a specific topic (i.e., a track ) to work towards an actionable outcome that may include developing and implementing novel management approaches, developing new collaborations, and identifying research priorities and funding opportunities. Registration (including all meals) and accommodations are quite reasonable (regular registration is $255-$345 and student registration is $205-$295 for the standard accommodation options for all three days if you meet the early-bird deadline of March 31). The abstract deadline for poster presentations, case study presentations, and/or restoration vignettes (lightning talks) is March 20. Any questions, comments, or suggestions can be directed to Robert Smith (2017 chair; Lycoming College) or to any of the other co-organizers. Use links below.
