2023 State of the Georgia Coast
Attend a special morning session focused on the use of natural infrastructure in resilience and the management of water resources. The main Symposium will kick off at 1 p.m. Throughout the afternoon, participants will hear from elected officials, local leaders, and business professionals about the top challenges facing coastal communities. The goal is to identify pressing issues and discuss collaborative approaches to solving them.
Hear from experts in marine science, policy and resource management who will present current research and extension projects on the Georgia coast. These projects align with Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant’s four focus areas: Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture, Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, Resilient Communities and Economies and Environmental Literacy and Workforce Development. The day will also include 3-minute lightning talks by professionals as well as a student poster session.
Visit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center between 9 a.m. – Noon and enjoy a tabling event featuring hands-on activities provided by environmental education organizations in coastal Georgia. Admission to the center is included in the registration fee.
Attendees are also invited to sign up for one of two Tybee Island Resilience Tours scheduled for 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. These 1-hour tours will explore sites around the island where various adaptation measures have been implemented by the city to improve its resilience to coastal hazards.
