What’s New in the Bay review

March 13, 2013

The annual “What’s New in the Bay” Discovery Lab occurred on March 6th. This was an engaging event that shared local climate-related work being done by the Council’s own George Matz with Kachemak Bay Birders, NOAA Kasistna Bay Labs, Seldovia Village Tribe, University of Alaska Fairbanks, Cook Inletkeeper, Alaska Coastal Studies, ADF&G, City of Homer, Kenai Watershed Forum, Homer Soil and Water Conservation District, Lake Clark NPS, and Kachemak Bay Research Reserve. The event drew a broad audience and, importantly, contributed to shared understanding and stewardship of our coastal resources.

As part of the annual event we consolidated a booklet of marine and coastal-related research overviews happening near Kachemak Bay. This booklet highlights important research findings and demonstrates the breadth of research and collaborations happening within the local environmental community.
