Join us for a virtual workshop on Thursday, July 23rd, 2020 9:30am – 12:00pm hosted by The Nature Conservancy on the state of seagrass in the South Shore Estuary Reserve and options for its preservation.
In this workshop, Mark Finkbeiner, NOAA Office of Coastal Management, Bradley Peterson, Stony Brook University/School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, and Elizabeth McCance, H.L. Ferguson Museum/Fishers Island Land Trust, will present the new seagrass maps for the South Shore Estuary Reserve (SSER), the scientific context for the current state of seagrass in the SSER, and an example of a community-based approach to local seagrass protection and management.
After their presentations, Mark, Brad and Elizabeth will answer your questions live and workshop participants will break into smaller groups to discuss options for protecting seagrass where it has persisted in the SSER. Click the registration link below to reserve your place in this workshop.
