University of Connecticut, Avery Point campus
local organizers: Jamie Vaudrey, Craig Tobias, Michael Whitney of UCONN; Sarah Crosby of Harbor Watch

Join us as we venture to the shores of Long Island Sound in Connecticut! We will discuss science, management, and education issues concerning estuarine and coastal ecosystems. Avery Point's location, surrounded on three sides by water, fits well with the campus' marine and maritime mission. This mission includes fulfilling UConn's responsibilities as a Sea Grant institution. Avery Point contributes to the understanding – and solution – of problems relating to the intersection of oceans and people, both through the expertise of the faculty and the education of its students who will help ensure sustainable uses of marine resources and coastal regions and cities.
