Symposium photoThe 1st Annual Mattie Kelly Environmental Symposium on Choctawhatchee Bay was also a success!  More than 80 scientists, educators, and environmentalists from Florida, Alabama, and Georgia attended the Symposium.  Eighteen oral presentations and 11 poster presentations were contributed to the scientific program. The symposium gave participants a chance to discuss the current state of the Choctawhatchee Estuary as well as learn about current and ongoing research projects in the Choctawhatchee.  The scientific program was followed by a dinner reception for attendees to discuss the presentations and discuss plans and ideas for future collaborative efforts. 

displaysSome quotes from participants of the Symposium:

“…the presentations during the entire day … provided quite a plethora of research, all informative, engaging, and entertaining.”

“It was so great getting to talk to so many people with similar interests … I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it.”
