Colorado River Ecosystem Symposium

The Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program and the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center will be hosting a symposium on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon. The symposium will be held in Tucson Arizona, October 28-30, 2003, and is open to all interested persons (public and students welcome!). The symposium will address questions such as:

Was the Low Steady Summer Flow in 2000 good for the river? How can conditions for the endangered humpback chub be improved? Are the new flows and experimental removal of non-native fish working? What is the role of experimentation under the Record of Decision?

Registration is free, but please register your attendance online using the website link below so organizers have enough meeting materials and light refreshments available. The program will run from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, with a special poster session the evening of October 28th.

The program and flyer are available at

The Symposium will be held at the Sheraton Tucson Hotel and Suites, 5151 E. Grant Road, Tucson, AZ 85712.
