Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners, Michigan, on Oct. 20, 2023. Those traveling to the conference have the option to spend the night at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station on Oct. 19, 2023, and participate in an afternoon workshop and evening reception.
Registration is now open for the 2023 MiCorps Conference. The agenda includes sessions on stream macroinvertebrate identification, freshwater mussel monitoring, volunteer lake data interpretation, the use of volunteer monitoring data by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and more! The conference is an opportunity to meet and interact with volunteers to share ideas and questions regarding current monitoring efforts.
