A terrific line up of speakers from other urban areas across the country will share their challenges and success stories on how they have restored their degraded harbors. Lunchtime elective workshops will give conference participants the opportunity to dig deeper into favorite topics. Exhibits from numerous agencies and non-profit partner organizations will introduce conference attendees to the wide range of expertise and opportunities for involvement from organizations already hard at work in helping to green our City and educate the public.
