Pere Marquette River Trip

April 22, 2022

Pere Marquette River Trip

You are invited on a 3-day, pre-meeting river float on the Pere Marquette National Scenic River that provides a rich opportunity to develop strong near-peer connections within a natural, discipline-relevant setting. By creating a distraction-free environment in which you can focus entirely on each other, rather than the busy scheduling of the SFS Annual Meeting/JASM, the annual river float will set the stage for a richer Annual Meeting experience and promote the formation of interpersonal relationships that will be sustained beyond the Annual Meeting. 

You will be trained in river safety, led by trained staff members from the Outdoor Adventure Program at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).

After this trip, you can expect to be trained in the following:

Our trip leaders will teach you about topics that may include local hydrology and biota, using USGS gauge data, tutorials on local natural history, and lessons on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish sampling.
