Papers, presentations and posters on river conservation and restoration are being sought for the sixth Clark Fork Symposium to be held March 4-5  at the University of Montana.

For 25 years, citizens of the Clark Fork River Basin have met every 5 years to discuss the conservation science of the basin. At the 2010 Clark Fork Symposium, the State of the River report will look back 25 years and forward 25 years. Invited speakers and panels will address recent and ongoing studies guiding the conservation and restoration of the basin. Posters and short oral presentations are invited from watershed groups, scientists, other citizens interested in the river basin. Field trips to watershed projects will also be featured.

Organizers are seeking presentations on studies or science-based conservation action that was completed or initiated in the last 5 years in the basin or longer. Abstracts (250 words) are due January 31, 2010, and full papers/presentations by March 1, 2010. All Symposium presentations (papers, powerpoints, posters, pontifications) will be published on the Clark Fork Symposium web page. (
