Our annual research symposium is held in the spring of each year and features a number of speakers describing research and education activities focused on issues related to the Missouri River and its basin. Speakers will include presenters from both the University of South Dakota and federal and state government agencies. All presentations are free and open to the public.

Please check back later for more information on the 2018 symposium.
