An annual event that shines the spotlight on one of our largest natural resources in the area is happening March 13-14.  Organizers are planning for the 8th annual St. Louis River Summit - to be held at the Yellowjacket Union on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

The two day session runs from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM both days.

The event is setup to act as a networking opportunity for people, ideas, and research.  A variety of factors influence the quality of life along the St. Louis River watershed - which directly feeds Lake Superior and eventually the Great Lakes.  Locals depend on the river in many ways - both sustenance and recreation.  A healthy river is beneficial for all of us.

The definite schedule is still being established, but attendees can expect to learn:

  • The status and findings of current research
    Results of implementing projects
    Ideas and status for future work.

Keynote speaker for the event will be Dr. Wallace J. Nichols - a renowned scientist and best-selling author.

Cost is just $30 per person.
