Planning is currently underway for the 14th Annual Science Symposium. This one-day meeting will provide researchers a chance to share the results of their projects related to the Emiquon Restoration, and other prairie, river, and floodplain systems.

When: April 8, 2020 (please note this is earlier than the last several years)

Where: Dickson Mounds Museum

Everyone is encouraged to share their research. The deadline for submitting an abstract is March 27, 2020.
