Evenings at Whitney Lecture is a monthly public lecture series that includes presentations on current science topics, as well as ongoing research programs at the lab. The speakers are recognized experts in their fields who welcome questions and discussion.
March’s program is titled “Resilience and Restoration of Coastal Ecosystems in a Changing Climate”. Christine Angelini, assistant professor in environmental engineering sciences at the University of Florida, will talk about the valuable services that vegetated coastal ecosystems (marshes, mangroves and sand dunes as well as oyster reefs) provide to the overall environment. She’ll also talk about how such ecosystems are in decline and how ecologists and engineers are looking for ways to restore and increase the resilience of the ecosystems.
Lectures start at 7:00pm and are free. Registration or reservations are not needed. Parking is also free. For more information, please call 904-461-4000.
