Recent advances and emerging issues in river management and restoration are some of the topics at this weeks River Crossings Conference and Workshop at CMU.
The conference allows researchers, students, agency managers and practitioners the chance to discuss advances in how to handle the river.
There will be presentations from researchers and agencies from around the West as well as panels and field trips.
Executive director for the River Management Society, Risa Shimoda, says everything is on the table this week, from management to scientific studies and advances.
Shimoda explained there will be, "... a lot of science and research on what should be happening, what is happening, to project on how we can manage rivers better, to presentations by practitioners who are out in the field on the ground protecting rivers."
Field trips will include a river trip down the Ruby-Horsethief Canyon, a tour of the Colorado riverfront, and visit to restoration projects along the Dolores river.
