March 6, 2018 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Auditorium, Kellogg Center, East Lansing, MI
Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.
The Great Lakes are one of Michigan’s greatest resources, providing recreational opportunities, a premier fisheries resource, water for agriculture, manufacturing and other industries, and multiple other uses. They are also subject to major problems such as invasive species, climate change and harmful algal blooms. This conference will address some of these key topic areas along with highlighting the evolution of coastal dunes, variability in Great Lakes ice cover, autonomous vehicles for underwater monitoring and poop-sniffing dogs for beach monitoring (with a potential demonstration). The cost to attend the conference is $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
