The symposium increases capacity of coastal communities and leaders to make informed decisions, balance diverse uses, ensure access, and plan for the future of their working waterfronts.
Feeling the squeeze: Florida Sea Grant provides multiple tools to help coastal communities balance competing demands for water access
If coastal communities are to remain sustainable, residents, visitors, policy makers, and regulators need new methods and information sources to harmonize the growing demand for access to their beaches and waterways. Researchers and extension specialists at Florida Sea Grant are making that challenge a priority.
Any individual involved with working waterfronts and waterways is invited to submit an abstract by April 15. The symposium will take place November 16-19 in Tampa.
