February 2019 Newsletter

A lot of collaborative work is happening behind the scenes already this New Year! We have some exciting events coming up this year, between the Hidden Rivers film screenings and our 2019 TRBN meeting in beautiful Guntersville State Park. We hope to see you at these events!
The mission of the Tennessee River Basin Network is to inspire and empower the people of the Tennessee River Basin to effectively steward the region's aquatic biodiversity. 
Partner Spotlight
Tennessee Student Environmental Alliance

Tennessee Student Environmental Alliance (TennSEA) is the local division of CaribbeanSEA. It's mission has always been to empower children to lead their communities to clean water. TennSEA/CaribbeanSEA is a great example of education in action. Their first step is to get people outdoors, then open their eyes and get them to take ownership. Something the Tennessee River Basin Network stands strongly behind. TennSEA/CaribbeanSEA's work is accomplished through partnerships. "We are all stronger when we can work together" shared Mary Beth Sutton in a recent interview.

Hidden Rivers Film Screenings

Members of the Network have been working with Freshwaters Illustrated to coordinate screenings of the Hidden Rivers film throughout cities across the Basin. Find more info regarding where and when HERE
Share Far & Wide!

We frequently discuss within our Network the lack of funding we see in our Basin compared to the level of biodiversity the Basin provides to our Nation. Mark Pace recently did a great job articulating this concern in a way many can interpret. Please share widely within your social media networks - an important story for TRBN members to tell!
Alabama Partner Meeting

The Alabama Rivers and Streams Network recently held its annual meeting for entities performing studies or improving habitat for Alabama’s threatened, endangered or at-risk species.  There were 49 attendees from federal and state agencies, utilities, industries, forestry organizations, colleges and universities and nonprofits.

Training Opportunity
Spatial-Stream-Network Models (SSNs)
April 2 - 4th, Boise ID
Sparsely sampled stream locations make it difficult to recognize multi-scale patterns, and it is prohibitively costly to sample continuously throughout stream networks.  Spatial statistical stream-network models are based on covariance structures that account for flow direction, flow volume, and the branching structure of streams and provide a valid means of interpolating between sample locations. The models describe spatial patterns in common stream attributes (e.g., water quality, habitat condition, biological surveys) and often outperform traditional analytical techniques applied to stream data.

The goal of this workshop is to share new ideas and software for better analysis and interpretation of data measured on streams networks.

Details & Registration for 1 or 2 day workshop
