January 7th to 10th, 2016
The Coalition's Annual Conference seeks to raise critical, timely issues for in-depth debates in an open, accessible forum. Community leaders and political figures come to discuss their positions, pledge their support and offer challenges to the community. The conference is attended by decision-makers from federal, state, local and tribal governments, agency representatives, stakeholders and a vast array of public and private interests including scientists, educators, contractors, conservationists, the media, students and the general public. The conference is the largest annual forum to advance Everglades conservation and restoration.
The 2016 FULL conference program is now available. Check out the list of panels and breakout sessions, guest speakers and panelists, covering a wide range of topics of critical importance to Everglades restoration efforts.
