Upcoming Events

21st Annual Quiet Water Symposium

Hosted by: The Quiet Water Society

The Quiet Water Society is proud to announce the dates for our 21st symposium.  As we begin a third decade of “Outdoor Michigan’s Favorite Indoor Show”, we embrace the same principles with the same fervor that prompted the originators of The Quiet Water Symposium in 1995. The 2015 symposium smashed all previous attendance records and with your help, we will do it again in 2016.  In two months, the 21st Annual Quiet Water Symposium will be held once again on the campus of Michigan State University in conjunction with Michigan State University’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Week.
