Join us for the “State of the Reserve” symposium on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017!

The “State of the Reserve” symposium provides an opportunity to share our research across the GTM Research Reserve boundaries. This year’s theme, “Working Waters,” will highlight projects within the reserve that showcase not only the services that the waters provide including filtration, buffering, habitats, migratory routes, and nursery, but also how we can work with the waters through living shorelines, water quality, restoration, low-impact development, and more!

While the research presentations are scientific and technical, there is a family oriented component where visitors can learn about the various citizen science projects within the GTM Research Reserve boundaries as well workshops to share habitats of environmental stewards.

Public workshops will run in the morning from 8:30 a.m.-noon. The afternoon scientific presentation will run from 1-4 p.m. A poster session and reception will follow from 4-6 p.m.

Registration is now open at https://stateofthereserve2017.eventbrite.com. For additional information, please email kaitlyn.dietz@dep.state.fl.us or call 904-823-4500.
