Join us for Science Thursdays!

This virtual event series gives attendees an up-close look at some of the science that drives our conservation work in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and beyond.

Feb 23: Riparian Restoration & Stream Guide

For this month's presentation, learn from Lori Brown, TNC rangeland specialist in South Dakota, about low-tech riparian structures—including beaver dam analogues—that are being used to restore natural hydrology in the state's grassland streams.

Science Thursdays are a monthly event series where TNC and partners share their findings from on-the-ground conservation science. Anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about science and conservation at TNC is invited to join. Learn more and register for this event.
