Bays and Bayous Symposium

Registration is now open for the Alabama-Mississippi Bays and Bayous Symposium, to be held Dec. 1-2 at the Mobile Convention Center in Mobile, Ala. The Symposium is a bi-annual event held alternately in Mississippi and Alabama to provide an opportunity for the community to learn about the state of our coastal environment.

The two-day event, hosted by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, will include oral and poster presentations, keynote speakers and networking opportunities with the goal of bringing scientists together with local industry and community groups to better educate about the status of knowledge about the Northern Gulf coastal ecosystem and processes that alter it; what local industry is implementing to sustain coastal resources; and how citizens groups are participating in sustaining coastal resources. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Science, Industry, Community: Building Bridges to Coastal Health.”

Sessions at the symposium will focus on water quality, living resources, habitat management, and sustainable communities. Presentations about Deepwater Horizon oil spill response, recovery and restoration activities will cut across all four sessions.
