Welcome to the interactive web schedule for the 2019 Midwest Fish & Wildlife Conference! The schedule is subject to change (as of November 20, 2018). Please check back for updates. To return to the main Conference website, go to: www.midwestfw.org.

The conference schedule is hosted in SCHED which allows you to search within the schedule, and filter the schedule to show items only occurring on a certain date or within a track/symposia.
  • To view only a certain type of presentation or track, locate the heading "Filter By Type" in the navigation bar. As an example, try clicking on "T01: Fisheries: Great Lakes I".
  • The default view for the schedule is "Simple" which only shows the start time and title of the agenda item. Hover over the button that says "Schedule" to see the different view options. The "Expanded" option will show start and end times, room location, and session description, if there is one.
  • You can build your own schedule by creating a free account with SCHED by selecting "SIGN UP." Watch the "how-to" video to learn more about using Sched. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: Adding agenda items to your schedule through this app does not sign you up for a session. If an agenda item says "pre-registration required" or charges an additional fee, you need to add the item to your registration through the online registration system

ABSTRACT. Small tributaries in the Laurentian Great Lakes serve as important links between their watersheds and nearshore habitats. Lower-order streams process and transport nutrient and sediment inputs from upland areas, and serve as critical spawning and nursery habitat for stream-resident and migratory fish. These traits make them strong candidates for restoration, especially in historically degraded areas such as lower Green Bay, Lake Michigan. Small tributaries across a gradient of land use were monitored over two years of contrasting hydrology. Continuous records of temperature and water stage were paired with water quality sampling from May to October. Fish community and habitat surveys illustrated variation in structure within and between streams. By characterizing water quality and fish communities in these understudied habitats, this study may inform future conservation and restoration actions in the lower Green Bay-Fox River Area of Concern.
