    Winter Speaker Series

    Illinois RiverWatch has been glad to host a variety of speakers in past fall and winter speaker series. We have speakers scheduled for our winter session, but are interested to know if there are subjects you’d like to learn about or people you want to hear from. If you have suggestions for future speakers or topics, please send them to riverwatch@lc.edu.
