Each year, PRRSUM hosts an annual symposium that focuses on bringing together regional stream restoration practitioners for networking and knowledge exchange. As the stream and river restoration field is inherently interdisciplinary, our stream restoration practitioners come with various backgrounds and professions - engineers, hydrologists, ecologists, government regulators, geomorphologists, etc. - and the goal of the annual UMSRS is to provide the opportunity for these varied perspectives/professions to interact and learn from each other.
The UMSRS is composed of 2.5 days of single-track sessions, so all practitioners are listening to the same group of talks versus having concurrent sessions. All meals (including dinners) are covered through registration fees and frequent breaks during the program enable folks to further interact and network.
