Bucknell University will host the 11th Annual Susquehanna River Symposium, "A Tale of Two Rivers: The Susquehanna and the Delaware," on Nov. 11 & 12 in the Elaine Langone Center. The event is free and open to the public.
The symposium is offered by the Watershed Sciences & Engineering Program of the Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment to connect scientists and engineers from throughout the mid-Atlantic region to focus on issues regarding the Susquehanna and Delaware watersheds.
"This event brings together academics, watershed managers, consulting scientists and engineers, and the public to discuss ongoing scientific research and innovative projects, to share ideas, and to increase awareness of watershed health, policy, and sustainability issues facing the Susquehanna and Delaware watersheds," said Program Director Benjamin Hayes. "After focusing solely on the Susquehanna for the past ten symposia, we are excited to expand this year's event to include the Delaware watershed. There are similarities and yet distinct differences between the two river basins, not only in hydrology, geology, and ecology, but also in land use and natural resource extraction, infrastructure, their estuaries, and water law and policy. We are very excited about broadening the scope of this symposium and look forward to the conversations and discussions that will take place."
The sixty-two page Program with Abstracts was shared at the event.
