River Soundings: Life, Laws and Levees on the Mississippi

June 27 @ 12:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This River Soundings Conference will feature lectures and panel discussions from scientists, regulators, and environmental activists. The conference is focused on river policies around St. Louis, including flood control, river restoration, floodplain development, and much more. Professors Bob Criss of Washington University and Jonathan Remo of SIU will also present recent papers as part of the conference.

The highlight of the event will be the keynote address that evening from New York Times best-selling author John Barry, who wrote Rising Tide, the seminal account of the Great Flood of 1927.

Finally, it will end with a nighttime canoe ride around the lakes of Forest Park, which will include dinner. Please register for the entire event or just for portions of it. The conference is free, and the canoe ride and dinner is only $10.
