SUSE4: Making urban stream rehabilitation a co-evolutionary process

May 31 (Wed) to June 3 (Sat), 2017

The fourth Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology (SUSE4) will be held in Browns Summit, NC from May 31 – June 3, 2017, just prior to the 2017 Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) annual meeting in Raleigh, NC. The central theme of the symposium is identifying and overcoming common barriers to catchment scale urban stream management and rehabilitation. We will focus on creating a framework to support productive conversations among academics and professionals from the fields of stream ecology, engineering, management, planning, and the social sciences. The format of the symposium will emphasize interactive discussions among participants from these fields, but will also include poster and oral presentations. The ultimate goal of the symposium is to encourage an ongoing transdisciplinary and co-evolutionary approach to urban stream management and rehabilitation. Outcomes may include developing and implementing novel management approaches, developing new collaborations, identifying research priorities and funding opportunities, and additional actions that address priorities identified at the symposium.

SUSE4 will take place at the Summit Conference Center in Haw River State Park, located about 30 minutes north of Greensboro, NC and 1.5 hours west of Raleigh, NC. More information about the meeting location can be found on the SUSE4 Accommodations page. Also, please note that the SUSE4 meeting is not part of the SFS annual meeting, and attendees may present at both SFS and SUSE4.
