St. Johns and Flagler Counties are linked by three water bodies: the St Johns River to the west, the Matanzas River (Intracoastal Waterway) and the Atlantic Ocean. Rising sea level, saltwater intrusion, coastal erosion and continuing development impact this area. Residents in these counties must learn how to manage increasing commercial and recreational pressures on the coastal environment while preserving important wetland, estuarine and nearshore habitats.
