Estuarine Habitat Restoration
October 20-24, 2012 Tampa, Florida, USA
Deadline: February 1, 2012
To Submit a Proposal:program.estuaries.org
Submit your proposal for the 6th National Conference on Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration at program.estuaries.org.
The Conference will be a dynamic and exciting opportunity for you to share your successes and lessons learned in all realms of coastal habitat restoration, and learn from others.
The overarching theme of “Restoring Ecosystems, Strengthening Communities” highlights the interwoven nature of coastal ecosystems and the communities that rely on them. Within this theme, we are seeking proposals for sessions, presentations, and posters that relate to one or more of the following topics:
The intersection of habitat restoration and community; how one strengthens the other
The “how-to” of restoration–the basic tenets, techniques, and efforts associated with implementing on-the-ground habitat restoration
Integrating restoration science, technology, and planning
Large-scale coastal and estuarine habitat restoration
The roles of policy and funding in coastal and estuarine habitat restoration
Additional topics for consideration include:
“Green” job growth and career development through habitat restoration
Recovery and restoration in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
Advances in science and policy in coastal and estuarine “Blue Carbon” sequestration
Effective advocacy for restoration at federal, state, and local levels
Recent regulatory and legal changes and their impact on coastal restoration
Use of mitigation and “penalty projects” to support restoration
Low-impact development: implementation to benefit coastal habitats
Climate change and its effects on coasts and estuaries
All proposals must be submitted through the 6th National Conference program website: program.estuaries.org
