The Joint Committee hosts quarterly webinars designed to foster communication between the members of the American Fisheries Society Bioengineering Section (AFS-BES) and the American Society of Civil Engineers Environmental and Water Resources Institute (ASCE-EWRI). These webinars are intended to provide opportunities for engineers and biologists to share relevant knowledge, learn from one another, and collaborate on projects related to fish passage.
Webinars are coordinated by the Joint Committee’s Webinar Task Group and are offered free of charge.
