From: Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (WBNERR) :
The future success of Cape Cod relies on a strong, balanced economy, environmental stewardship, and high quality of life.  At this year’s conference we will take a step back in time and use lessons from history and the region’s development to re-examine what living in a coastal area like Cape Cod means and rekindle an appreciation and awareness for the coastal resources on which we depend. We will embrace our rich maritime heritage, how things are transitioning, and the unique opportunities and challenges that our coastal landscape presents. Drawing on science and innovation we will examine best practices for working together to manage our coastal resources, strengthen the economy, and create a strong and resilient Cape Cod.
