Restore America's Estuaries announces sched for Nov. conference

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Restore America's Estuaries recently released the program schedule for its fifth conference, scheduled for Nov. 13-17 in Galveston, Texas. Focusing on the restoration of coastal and estuarine habitats, the group will look closely at "Preparing for Climate Change: Science, Practice, and Policy" through panel discussions and presentations.

The organization says:
The National Conference and Expo has taken on a new level of importance due to the tragic events continuing to unfold in the Gulf of Mexico. Stopping the leak and preventing oil from reaching the coast are only the first steps in a process that will take years-and likely decades-to resolve. RAE has responded to this environmental, economic, and human disaster by adding high-level sessions and roundtables to the Conference program devoted to the science, policy, and technologies dealing with oil remediation and coastal restoration.

Details about the conference appear here, while the program schedule is available here.
