      This might also be a good time to talk about the Spring IOWATER Snapshot. We'll be participating again, and if you could let me know whether you can participate that would help very much with our planning. The Spring Snapshot is Saturday May 14, and the Fall Snapshot is October 15.

      - Thanks!

      RIVER CURRENTS: A forum on revitalizing rivers

      River Currents is an education forum geared toward river enthusiasts, water trail developers, watershed coordinators, IOWATER volunteers, and others who desire a better understanding of a river as an expression of its watershed and riparian zones. Part of the day will be spent learning about common stream problems, including examples of alternative projects that mimic systems found in nature offering practical solutions for various bank 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 learning about the relationships and interactions of a river’s habitat.  AGENDA

      DES MOINES.   Iowa Rivers Revival -- the statewide river education and advocacy organization committed to protecting Iowa’s rivers and streams – is presenting “RIVER CURRENTS – a Forum on Revitalizing Iowa Rivers.” 

       

      The forum will be Friday, April 29, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt Longhouse, 8700 NE 126 Avenue, Maxwell, Iowa.  A registration fee of $10 includes lunch.  The public is invited.

       

      The Forum will offer a fresh perspective on river conservation.  It is geared toward river enthusiasts of all kinds, water trail developers, watershed coordinators, IOWATER volunteers, and others who want a better understanding of our rivers and streams, the “riparian zones” along their banks, and their watersheds.

       

      Part of the day will be spent learning about common stream problems and discussing solutions -- including examples of alternative projects that mimic systems found in nature and offer practical solutions for various bank 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 learning about the relationships and interactions of a river’s habitat.
