The North Carolina Sea Grant is hosting a one-day forum today on the state's changing waterfronts, including a session on the loss of access for recreational boaters.

 

The program includes sessions on how and why waterfronts are changing. Seminars will address cultural and economic factors, options for communities and property owners, and innovative ways that other states are dealing with similar issues.

 

Attendees will include representatives from state agencies, legislators and private business owners affected by the changing waterfront.

 

North Carolina has more than 325 miles of coastline and 2.3 million acres of estuaries.

 

North Carolina Sea Grant works with individuals, groups, government agencies and businesses to develop an understanding of the state's coastal environment and promote the sustainable use of marine resources.

 

The university-based program began in 1970, and it is part of a network of 30 Sea Grant programs throughout the country.
