The International Erosion Control Association will be holding it’s first-ever event dedicated to coastal issues. A conference they have cleverly entitled:

Coastal Conference
URI Kingston Campus
Thursday, 19 June 2008

Two RI Surfrider friends, Jon Boothroyd and Janet Freedman, will be giving talks. They will also have a field trip to South Kingstown Beach, where Jon with show four approaches to shoreline management: hard armoring, soft stabilization, off-shore deposition of dredge spoils and retreat. I know which one I’m voting for. Do you?

Conference does cost a little bit for the whole day, lunch included. Maybe RISF would provide the fee for a rep or two?
