2022 Coastal & Estuarine Summit

Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE) proudly presents the 2022 Coastal & Estuarine Summit with support from Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL). In its 11th year, the 2022 Summit will bring together the coastal restoration and management communities to explore issues, solutions, and lessons learned in their work. The Summit Program will address all aspects of coastal and estuarine restoration and management, including the Great Lakes and international locales. These topics are crucial as coastal communities pursue new, more robust strategies to effectively manage, protect, and restore their resources in a changing climate. Ensuring these resources, and the communities that rely on them, are resilient now and into the future will be a particular focus. Hosted by Restore America’s Estuaries in New Orleans, LA on December 4-8, 2022.more info about 2022 Coastal & Estuarine Summit
