  • Rumble Happy Hour: Bottlenecks and Buffers

    January 27, 2021  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Join your Consortium partners for an informal Rumble Happy Hour with a theme of “Bottlenecks and Buffers”. We have all run into bottlenecks that prevent us from making progress towards restoring and sustaining healthy streamside ecosystems. 

    This will be a virtual space to share toasts to partners who have made your life in buffer land a bit easier this past year, small breakout rooms to rumble and share our experiences with bottlenecks, and lastly coming back to share some highlights.

    So bring your drink of choice, and come with the permission to speak about the tough stuff!
