The speaker agenda is full but we are still accepting abstracts for the professional poster session
We invite you to participate in the 2023 Montana Lakes Conference by submitting an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation. We hope to achieve a balance between scientific and applied studies presenting challenges facing Montana Lakes while also providing solutions and success stories brought about through BMP’s, policy, and citizen led conservation efforts.
The Conference Steering Committee has identified focal risk topics and examples of subtopics. We welcome all papers regarding lake and reservoir science, management, policy, social impacts, and success stories.
