  • Social Science for Natural Resource Managers


    Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 8:30am – 4:30pm

    The social sciences are a valuable but often overlooked element of coastal zone management. Issues from marsh restoration to flood mitigation all involve critical human elements— knowledge, values, and attitudes—of the people that live, work, and play in these areas. This training provides the basic knowledge and skills to help coastal managers understand their stakeholders.
