Feb. 21 Big Muddy Speaker Series in Rocheport

"Restoring the Big Muddy"

Presentation by Mike Chapman, US Army Corps of Engineers

The historic Missouri River was a completely different river system than what we have today. From a meandering, unpredictable muddy stream, we have reshaped the Mighty Mo into a more stable (but still unpredictable) swift channel.

Mike Chapman, an engineer for the US Army Corps of Engineers Missouri River Recovery Project, will show how we have moved from there to here and where we may be going. He'll discuss the reasons for habitat restoration, describe the varied restoration projects the Corps has completed on the river, as well as current concerns in the State of Missouri with sediment management on the river.

7:00 p.m. - Tues. Feb. 21, 2011 (third Tuesday this month!)
lower floor of the
Les Bourgeois Vineyards Bistro
in Rocheport, MO
