About Summit


The National Coastal Estuarine Summit will be held virtually September 29 – October 1, 2020.  This will be a highly interactive, state of the art, virtual opportunity to network with colleagues, share lessons learned, and hear from experts on the latest in coastal restoration and management. More than 300 proposals for panels, presentations, and posters have been submitted and nearly 30 sponsors already committed to the Summit.
