River Currents is an education forum geared toward river enthusiasts, water trails developers, watershed coordinators, IOWATER volunteers, and others who desire a better understanding of the river as an expression of its watersheds and riparian zones. Part of the day will be spent understanding common stream problems, including examples of alternative projects that mimic systems found in nature offering practical solutions for various stabilization, flood reduction, drainage, road crossings, and other types of projects that happen in and along rivers. The last part of the day will be spent understanding the relationships and interactions of a river’s habitat.
