What will you learn?

This webinar features presentations from Cooperative Ecosystem Study Unit
(CESU) leaders and Federal funding partners specific to the five
southeastern region CESUs: Chesapeake Bay, Gulf Coast, Piedmont-South
Atlantic, Southern Appalachian Mountains, and South Florida Caribbean.

The CESUs located in the Southeast U.S. present this virtual rally as a
forum to bring together resource managers and research scientists to
discuss findings and management needs associated with the waters, lands,
resources, climate and cultures of the southeastern United States. The
theme of the Rally, Collaboration and Cooperation in Protecting Resources
and Ecosystems, refers to the additive and synergistic nature of the
partnerships that the CESU National Network seeks to foster.

The goal of the 2018 Southeast Regional CESU Virtual Rally is to
disseminate and facilitate collaborative and interdisciplinary applied
projects in the general area of conservation science and
management. Thematic areas include Conservation Science and Management of
Natural and Cultural Resources; Regional research; and Education. The
morning and afternoon sessions (two different webinars) will include
presentations by federal CESU partners who will describe their agency
vision for research partnerships, highlight research needs, and funding
opportunities. Additional speakers will highlight projects of each
participating CESUs: Chesapeake Bay, Gulf Coast, Piedmont-South Atlantic,
Southern Appalachian Mountains, and South Florida Caribbean.
