The Mid-Atlantic Coastal Acidification Network (MACAN) will host its fourth webinar, “Perspectives from Natural Resource Management,” on March 21 at 1 p.m.


Summary: Natural resource managers in the Mid-Atlantic have many questions about the impacts and management options of ocean, coastal, and estuarine acidification. Natural resource managers need viable strategies to understand, anticipate, and respond to future changes brought on by acidification. Other regions of the United States have been struggling with this question for some time, and there is an important opportunity to learn from these regions. Natural resource management perspectives will be the focus of the fourth and final webinar in this series. The webinar will consist of 2 presentations followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. The first presentation by Bob Schuster, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, will focus on questions and concerns for managing acidification in the Mid-Atlantic region. The second presentation by Jenn Phillips, California Natural Resources Agency, will focus on how practitioners on the West Coast have been grappling with possible mitigation and adaptation mechanisms.
