Do laws adequately protect rivers? Who speaks for the rivers? In what ways is caring for this valuable resource and the confluence region disconnected from natural river functions? This discussion will examine how our region’s rivers have been protected through policy and legislation, and we’ll also explore what legal environmental protection of the river might look like—including how we play a part as citizens. Director of the Interdisciplinary Environmental Clinic at Washington University Elizabeth Hubertz will give a practical examination of issues with laws that govern the Mississippi River and their applications. Eric T. Freyfogle, Research Professor and Swanlund Chair Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, will provide an ecological-systems-based view of the river, including how our ownership biases shape our evaluation of it.
