Grant, Springuel to present at National Working Waterfronts and Waterways Symposium

Maine Sea Grant marine Extension professionals Kristen Grant and Natalie Springuel will present at the fifth National Working Waterfronts and Waterways Symposium in Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 14–17.

Grant will present on her sabbatical research on community engagement in planning for coastal flooding. Springuel is part of a team documenting the National Working Waterfront Network’s success stories.

Across the U.S. coastal and Great Lakes coastlines, waterfronts are culturally and economically important areas at the intersection of land and water. Maine Sea Grant has been at the forefront of state and national working waterfront preservation efforts and is a founding member of the National Working Waterfront Network and the symposium.
