From colorful topminnows and darters to River Giants, you'll gain a deeper appreciation for the natural treasures in our backyard as you meet and interact with TNACI researchers and scientists and our partners in the field. More than a dozen experts will be on hand to share insight on the fascinating conservation projects currently underway.

Dr. Anna George, director of TNACI, will deliver some inspiring auditorium programs, while experts from Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Conservation Fisheries Inc.,Tennessee Tech University,and UGA demonstrate field techniques and describe the multiplier effect of collaborative work.
