More than 300 people, including students, faculty, scientists, engineers, policy-makers, consultants, and community members, participated in the thirteenth annual Susquehanna River Symposium October 26 and 27, 2018, at Bucknell University.
"Science, Conservation, and Heritage" drew participants from as far away as New York, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware for the two-day event. Friday featured a keynote address delivered by Christopher Williams, Sr. Vice President for Conservation at American Rivers and more than 80 research posters by students and faculty from 20 universities.
On Saturday, Bucknell’s Elaine Langone Center continued to be a hub of activity with plenary presentations by John Arway (PA Fish and Boat Commission), Chris Williams (American Rivers), and Sid Jamieson (Cayuga Nation Iroquois) who led hour-long breakout discussions afterwards. Everyone continued to fellowship over lunch in the Walls Lounge.
The afternoon featured twenty-four oral presentations in eight different categories and exhibits from twelve companies and organizations. This year's symposium attracted a record number of participants from the general public.
Details about the symposium were shared in the Program with Abstracts, which included a schedule of events and the author names, titles, and abstracts for each presentation.
