Student Research Symposium: Meet the Future of Science!

November 9, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come meet, learn from, and support the best and brightest of Wisconsin’s future scientists! Top undergraduate and graduate students from Wisconsin colleges and universities will present a wide range of research in the natural sciences at this year’s Student Research Symposium, and we’d love to have you there.

With a full day of presentations, delicious catered lunch, and 379 acres of wild Wisconsin to explore, you’ll be fully immersed in the wonders of the natural world.

You especially won’t want to miss a special keynote presentation from Melissa Curran, an Environmental Scientist with Stantec Consulting Services, specializing in botanical surveys and restoration ecology.  Over the last 12 years, she has completed numerous natural resource assessments, rare plant surveys and restoration projects throughout the Midwest.  She has documented dozens of new rare plant populations and is currently working on reintroducing orchid species to restoration sites throughout Wisconsin.

Ready to join us? Students, professors, scientists, professionals, and anyone else interested in learning more about science and nature are invited to attend! More information available at our Symposium page.


Student Admission: $25 for non-presenters, $20 for presenters

General Admission: $35 for non-members, $30 for Trail Pass Members, and FREE for Riveredge All-Access members (All-Access members will need to pay $7 add-on, however, if would like to have lunch.)
