Conference Session to Focus on Safe Beaches and Shellfish Beds
A session at this year’s Maine Sustainability & Water Conference will look at how changes in coastal water quality are affecting – or projected to affect – beaches and shellfish beds in Maine and New Hampshire. Led by NEST researchers Kathleen Bell, UMaine and Kevin Gardner, UNH, presenters will discuss what new tools, methods, data, and collaborative approaches are available to help anticipate changes, understand the impacts of these changes, and guide regional and local responses to these changes.
The 2015 Maine Sustainability & Water Conference will be held on Tuesday, March 31 at the Augusta Civic Center, Augusta, ME. Registration is $45 and includes lunch and admission to all sessions. Additional information is available at http://umaine.edu/mitchellcenter/news/maine-water-conference/
