Alabama-Mississippi Bays and Bayous Symposium

The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and partners invite you to join them in the historic city of Mobile, Alabama, to share information on the status of research, monitoring activities, on-the-ground restoration, citizen actions, and education focused on the health of our coastal environment.

This two-day event will include presentations and discussions by local resource managers, scientists, and active participants in watershed stewardship who will share our latest understanding of the condition of the lands, waters and living resources of the northern Gulf of Mexico. The Bays and Bayous Symposium showcases the latest information about the estuary's changing watersheds, impacts from major stressors, recovery programs for species and habitats, and emerging challenges.

Note: Our 2022 event is being held January 24-25, 2023 at the Mobile Convention Center.
