The Center for Watershed Protection’s 2022 Coastal & Island Symposium brings together subject experts to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Coastal and Island issues. The Symposium provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions adopted in Coastal & Island regions.
If you live, work, or play in a coastal or island environment, the challenges to managing your watershed are often very different. High water tables, flooding, lack of elevation, difficulty in acquiring traditional materials, variations in soil type, and other issues play a critical role in the types and ways tools should be applied and practiced.
This symposium is designed for practitioners to learn more about the challenges of coastal & island environments and share the tools, stories, challenges they face as practitioners in the coastal and island environment. Participants will hear from other experts around the country on watershed and stormwater issues while connecting with experts in the field.
