Rivers have become prominent subjects for natural resource personnel and the public. There are new riparian and wetland programs, controversial flooding and water quality issues, proposed water development projects, and innovative thinking about ecosystem management.
The Watershed Management Workshop for the James, Vermillion, and Big Sioux rivers was developed to bring people, projects, problems, and programs together from the watersheds to discuss current and future needs for management, research, and cooperative efforts.
The workshop opened with a discussion of basic principles of terrestrial, riparian, and aquatic components of a watershed and was followed by a case history of a watershed management program in Minnesota. This set the stage for a discussion of specific projects and programs that are underway on the James, Vermillion, and Big Sioux River watersheds.
