Colleagues -

Just wanted to point out the March 27, 2001 Detroit River conference which Michigan Sea Grant is co-sponsoring - this information was also released via GLIN-Announce last week.  I'm coordinating/moderating a session on "Waterfront Redevelopment and New Urbanism and Neighborhoods" during the conference.  There is no registration fee but advance registration is required (available electronically on web page).

We also have info on this conference on the Detroit American Heritage Rivers Homepage:
