The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM Research Reserve) will host its’ annual 2019 State of the Reserve symposium Friday, February 1st.  The theme of “Celebrating 20 Years” highlights the reserve’s long-term research projects, including research on local fish and lizards, habitat mapping efforts, mangroves and saltmarshes, and wave, current and wind measurements of the reserve’s beaches and water quality.

The symposium kicks off with a morning session from 9:00am-12:00 Noon, “How’s the Water: Eutrophication and Us!”, which will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about eutrophication, over-enrichment of water by nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus, the natural processes, as well as its causes and impacts.  Those interested can click on the following link to register for the morning session; 2019 State of the Reserve Morning Session.
