2018 Summit

9th National Summit on Coastal and Estuarine Restoration and Management

Investing in Our Coasts: Environment, Economy, Culture


Long Beach, CA | December 8-13, 2018

Artist: Melody O’Connor Allen

Restore America’s Estuaries and the Coastal States Organization partnered for the first time to co-host this biennial event. We brought together the coastal restoration and management communities for this unique opportunity to network and share information on topics of utmost concern. The theme of the 2018 Summit was “Investing in Our Coasts: Environment, Economy, Culture.” This theme reflected the variety of intertwined benefits that our coastal areas and resources provide to communities and to the nation.
