Creeks to Coast: Final Day

July 22, 2016

Coasts to Creeks 2016 has come to a close! This past week, our educators in the Creeks to Coast workshop, presented by Georgia Power Foundation and Georgia-Pacific, have journeyed from the headwaters of the Chattahoochee River all the way to the Providence Canyon and lower Chattahoochee to study the various uses of the river system and how humans impact the river's journey. 

We have enjoyed sharing the educators’ daily reflections and hope you have too! The entries below detail the final day of their journey:

Coral Restoration Q and A with our Research Team

In honor of Coral Reef Awareness Week, we’re diving in to take a closer look at our latest coral research trip to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Among those who attended the trip were Kimberly Stone, curator of fish and invertebrates at Georgia Aquarium; Jeff Reid, senior director of dive safety operations at Georgia Aquarium; and Jessica Levy, reef restoration program manager at the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF). We spoke to these three researchers to learn more about the personal experience of working with these incredibly important corals year after year.
