Project Leader Tracy Hill was invited by the University of Missouri Graduate School to discuss pallid sturgeon recovery efforts on the Missouri River.  Dr Hill participated in the Charles W. Schwartz Fisheries and Wildlife Seminar Series.  The presentation centered on projects being conducted by the Columbia National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office in the lower 300 miles of the Missouri River.  The presentation emphasized how adaptive management is being utilized in the recovery of this ancient riverine fish species.   The projects involve monitoring the pallid sturgeon population and evaluating habitat construction and modification actions being done by the Army Corps of Engineers.  The 65 students and faculty that attended the presentation were genuinely interested in the work and asked many thought provoking questions.
