Last week, the Center for Coastal Solutions at the University of Florida shared an article on our first-ever Partner Symposium titled Sharing Nature’s Best Practices for Resilience at Cross-Sector Symposium. The Center for Coastal Solutions took on the task of hosting this symposium, and we’d like to send a big thank you to their team for executing this event flawlessly!

Highlights from the article:

St. Augustine, Florida provided a picturesque backdrop for the inaugural Network for Engineering With Nature (N-EWN) 2024 PartnerSymposium from May 22 to 24, which brought together 170 members from 28 network partners from across the country to forge deeper connections while learning about one another’s work to implement nature-based solutions or “actions to protect, sustainably manage, or restore natural or modified ecosystems to address societal challenges, simultaneously providing benefits for people and the environment.” 

“This is our chance to turn gaps in knowledge into opportunities for advancement,” said Amanda Tritinger, deputy program manager for the US Army Corps of Engineering with Nature® program.
