The Endangered Apalachicola

A National River Conference- 6 pm.

Sign up before it's filled up! Join the river system experts (for one or all three days) at The Endangered Apalachicola--A National River Conference. March 14-16 in Tallahassee, FL. Keynote dinner with former Senator Bob Graham. Conference concludes with a boat trip on the upper Apalachicola River hosted by Apalachicola Riverkeeper. Sponsorships still available. Conservation partners and sponsors include: Apalachee Audubon Society, Florida Wildlife Federation, Apalachee Regional Planning Council, Florida Conservation Coalition, Sierra Club, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, and National Wildlife Federation.

This conference will bring renewed attention to the ecological, cultural and economic importance of the Apalachicola River, Floodplain and Bay and strengthen efforts to ensure the sustainability of this resource for current and future generations.

The political, regulatory, and physical contexts for managing long standing issues of flow are changing within the Tri-State region of the Apalachicola Chattahoochee Flint (ACF) Basin. Of particular importance are the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin Water Control Manual recently proposed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the anticipated decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Florida v Georgia. Drought management is taking on increased importance, while long standing questions of science and management remain important both in Florida and within the larger ACF Basin.

The conference will offer opportunities to learn about the challenges and opportunities ahead from knowledgeable scientists, elected leaders and local, state and federal water managers in the Tri-State region, as well as from other stakeholders.
