Education Symposium Announcement

This November, the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC) and its partners invite educators, both formal and non-formal, and various watershed resource professionals to join in the Mississippi River Watershed Education Symposium. Please help spread your success stories and new watershed initiatives (education and research) by attending our conference, November 14th & 15th in East Alton, IL.

The event will highlight two keynote presentations, one by Sean O’Connor of National Geographic’s education team and another by Chad Pregracke of Living Lands & Waters. Pregracke is the 2013 recipient of CNN’s Hero of the Year Award. Through these keynote talks and presentations/workshops from speakers throughout the Mississippi River Watershed and beyond, we hope to encourage and develop networking opportunities for partnering on unique, science-based watershed education programs.

Registration is only $55 and includes both keynote presentations, concurrent sessions and lunch on Friday and Saturday, and dinner Friday night! You can’t beat that for a two-day conference. Registration is simple and can be done online.  Check out our conference website to see a detailed agenda and learn about area lodging or go ahead and REGISTER NOW!
