Our Research Symposium features presentations about research conducted in collaboration with Weeks Bay Reserve and independent scientists, university students and faculty and staff. Topics include aspects of sea level rise, marsh migration, effects of nutrients on parts of the estuarine ecosystem and headwaters wetlands among others.

Lunch is provided is provided both days. Register by clicking on the online registration button and filling in the brief form.
