9th Biennial State of the Bay Symposium (19 Aug 2008)
The Estuary Program, a non-regulatory program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality,and its partners work together to implement The Galveston Bay Plan (The Plan), a 20-year, science-based plan designed to protect and restore the bay.

The Estuary Program hosts the biennial symposium to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to interact and share environmental policy and management successes, report the latest monitoring and research findings, and to illuminate the challenges facing Galveston Bay. The theme of this year's symposium is "What is Needed to Sustain Our Estuary?"

The Estuary Program welcomes abstracts for oral and poster presentations and panel sessions that incorporate elements of sustaining Galveston Bay in the midst of our region's rapid human population growth.

The symposium audience is comprised of representatives from citizen and environmental groups, business and industry, commercial and recreational fishing, ecotourism and recreation, K-12 education and academia, and local, state, federal and regional government. Presentations and panel sessions will cover all aspects of The Plan.
