Ninth Biennial State of the Bay Symposium planned for Jan. 12-14

The Galveston Bay Estuary Program will hold the Ninth Biennial State of the Bay Symposium on Jan. 12-14, 2009, at the Galveston Island Convention Center at the San Luis Resort in Galveston, Texas.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “What is Needed to Sustain Our Estuary?” The Estuary Program welcomes abstracts for oral and poster presentations and panel sessions that incorporate elements of sustaining Galveston Bay in the midst of our region’s rapid human population growth.

The Estuary Program is a non-regulatory program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and its partners work together to implement The Galveston Bay Plan, a 20-year, science-based plan designed to protect and restore the bay. The symposium is held to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss environmental policy, latest research findings and the challenges facing Galveston Bay.
