Coastal Connect is a quarterly newsletter from the Coastal Training Program. It is distributed to the CTP working groups, committees, and advisory groups across northeast Florida including the First Coast Invasive Working Group, the Oyster and Water Quality Task Force, the Management Advisory Group, attendees from workshops, training, events, collaborative meetings, and more! This is a new resource that we hope connects stakeholders throughout northeast Florida and provide information on projects, resources, funding, and tools.

State of the Reserve
The GTM Research Reserve hosts an annual “State of the Reserve” research symposium to highlight projects and studies that have been conducted within the Reserve. Research and monitoring conducted by Reserve staff, volunteers, and visiting scientists from all over the world inform management decisions to understand population dynamics, water quality, and the restoration of important habitats. Long-term monitoring networks, like the System-Wide Monitoring Program (SMWP), provide opportunities to assess the effects of coastal storms and serve as a baseline to examine changes throughout many years.
