The Great Lakes Coastal Assembly is pleased to announce that the 2022 Great Lakes Coastal Symposium (Coastal Symposium) will take place from September 19-21, 2022, at the Kewadin Convention Center in Sault Ste. Marie, MI.

The Coastal Symposium will feature plenary, invited, and submitted presentations, networking opportunities, workshops, and field trips for conservation practitioners, scientists, and coastal wetland stakeholders. The theme for the Coastal Symposium is identifying priorities for coastal system conservation and restoration in less-altered coastal ecosystems. Over the course of two days, participants will discuss means and tools for prioritizing ongoing coastal system conservation and restoration work in the eastern Upper Peninsula, with relevance for practitioners across the Great Lakes region.

A call for field trips and presentations will go live at the end of March.

Registration and accommodation details are forthcoming. A hotel room block will be held for this event at Kewadin Hotel and Convention Center.

This event is organized by the Great Lakes Coastal Assembly, the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, and Audubon Great Lakes and funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Coastal Program.
