11th U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae @ Hilton Albany
Oct 23 – Oct 28 all-day

Local coordination is being led by NEIWPCC, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and U.S. Geological Survey with support from the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

The theme for the upcoming symposium is “Science to Support Solutions from Shore to Shore“. From freshwater to marine systems, the prevalence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) is a national environmental challenge, and solutions are needed. Celebrating this event in New York – the only state with Great Lake shorelines, marine coasts, and the diverse range of ecosystems between these extremes – creates an ideal setting to discuss progress in understanding algal bloom ecology and the solutions necessary to prevent and reduce HABs.

The Forum gathers the adaptation community to foster knowledge exchange, innovation, and mutual support for a better tomorrow. The National Adaptation Forum includes opportunities for professional development through formal training sessions, facilitated practitioner presentations, and informal knowledge sharing and networking all at a single venue. This event affords attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to make their work climate-informed, share what they have learned with others, and develop a stronger network.

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.
