Rivers and Streams Technical Committee

The Rivers and Streams Technical Committee is to facilitate the proper management of Midwest cool, warm, and coldwater streams. This committee will organize and disseminate information and promote useful and timely research for the development of sound lotic management techniques that address aquatic populations and their environment. Read the full mission statement.

34th annual spring meeting
March 28 – 29, 2023

This is a call for agenda items and presentations

The Rivers and Streams Technical Committee is now accepting abstracts for oral and poster presentations on topics related to rivers and streams systems across the North Central Division.  We have a wonderful, informal setting with 100’s of years of professional experience in the room. This is a great opportunity to share your work and exchange ideas with other professionals.

The meeting will be held at the Rock Island Conservation Club in Milan, Illinois (2421 Big Island Road, 61246).  Registration will begin on Tuesday, March 28, 2023 at 1:00 p.m., and the meeting will conclude on Wednesday, March 29, 2023 around 12:00 p.m. We may go a bit later on Wednesday to accommodate presenters (leftovers for lunch!). Poster presentations are encouraged and will be discussed during the evening social over beverages and fried catfish.

In addition to technical presentations, a business meeting will be held, and State Chapter updates will be given by State Chapter Representatives. State Chapter Representatives should put together a brief report and send it to the Chair and Secretary/Treasurer for the RSTC website
