The Endangered Apalachicola – A National River Conference – Day 2

  • March 15, 2018
  • King Life Sciences Building, FSU Campus, Tallahassee

This 3-day conference will bring renewed attention to the ecological, cultural and economic importance of the Apalachicola River, Floodplain and Bay and strengthen efforts to ensure the sustainability of this resource for current and future generations.

     Wednesday, March 14, 2018
     Thursday, March 15, 2018
     Friday, March 16, 2018

Thursday’s dinner keynote speaker is Bob Graham, former US Senator and former Florida Governor.

Friday afternoon is an optional (extra cost) trip on the Apalachicola River.

The conference will offer opportunities to learn about the challenges and opportunities ahead from knowledgeable scientists, elected leaders and local, state and federal water managers in the Tri-State region, as well as from other stakeholders.

The political, regulatory, and physical contexts for managing long standing issues of flow are changing within the Tri-State region of the Apalachicola Chattahoochee Flint (ACF) Basin. Of particular importance are the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin Water Control Manual recently proposed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the anticipated decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Florida v Georgia. Drought management is taking on increased importance, while long standing questions of science and management remain important both in Florida and within the larger ACF Basin.

Conference hosts include the Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC), Riparian County Stakeholder Coalition (RCSC), Apalachicola Conservation Coalition (ACC), Tall Timbers, Sierra Club, Apalachee Audubon, Florida Wildlife Federation, Apalachicola Riverkeeper, and Apalachee Regional Planning Council (ARPC).
