BMIC staff are collaborators on an ongoing MW CASC lake sturgeon research project.
Our Impact, Why it Matters
The Midwest CASC’s work is driven by collaboration. By bringing together scientists, natural and cultural resource managers, and members of the public, we develop relevant, actionable science for our region.
A recent example of this collaboration in action was a knowledge exchange workshop held on the Lac du Flambeau reservation. Partners on a Midwest CASC-funded project investigating the impacts of climate change on vegetation, ecohydrology, and management of manoomin (wild rice) watersheds gathered to share their knowledge through hands-on demonstrations, including sediment coring, aquatic plant identification, hydrological monitoring, carving knocking sticks, and preparing deer hides.
We held our 2023 Annual Gathering on August 14-16 in Indianapolis.
Olivia LeDee will lead the Midwest CASC as Regional Administrator.
