Upcoming Professional Development Events

Restore America’s Estuaries and the Coastal States Organization co-host The National Coastal and Estuarine Summit. We bring together the coastal restoration and management communities for integrated discussions to explore issues, solutions, and lessons learned in their work. The Summit explores cutting-edge issues in coastal restoration and management and highlights the latest research through interactive sessions, plenary speakers, and poster presentations. It invites a unique blend of people who are involved in policy, science, strategy, business, and on-the-ground restoration and management. The 2020 Summit will be in Providence, Rhode Island October 4-8, 2020.
