From Stem to Stern II: Boating and Waterway Management in Florida

From Stem to Stern II 2008
Florida's economic well-being is linked to its freshwater, coastal, and marine resources. Local and state governments face the difficult challenge of sustaining economic viability while maintaining the environmental integrity of their waterways. This challenge is driven by factors that include rapid population growth and an increase in recreational boating and other water-related activity.

The first Stem to Stern Conference in November 2006 served as a unique forum for Boating and Waterway stakeholders from around the State of Florida to gather and discuss the pressing issues facing their counties and regions. Attendees emphasized the importance of the conference in strengthening and developing links between stakeholders and highlighting effective efforts in managing water resources. As a result, a second statewide conference was requested.

Stem to Stern II will present innovative technologies and methods designed to address boating and waterway management issues faced by local and state governments. The conference will also provide a forum for planners, managers, and policy makers to share accomplishments, discuss ideas, and consider priorities for future action.
