Events & Meetings

In order to more effectively communicate the fish consumption advisories to the users of the South River and South Fork Shenandoah River, members of the South River Science Team participate in and support local community events. South River Science Team members volunteer their time to help organize some of the events and provide hands-on help. At annual events like Riverfest and the Fly Fishing Festival, South River Science Team members provide detailed information and answer questions about the team’s activities.
