Marine and Coastal
Hi, I am Libby Carnahan, UF IFAS Extension Pinellas County Florida Sea Grant Agent. Florida Sea Grant is committed to conserving coastal resources and enhancing economic opportunities for the people of Florida. I provide educational opportunities and research-based information designed to assist citizens, visitors, businesses, and community leaders in making informed choices with respect to our marine and coastal resources.
The Pinellas SeaGrant Program works to increase awareness and build environmental stewardship through programs like the Going Coastal Education Series, the Salty Topics Speaker Series, and Coastal Cleanup and Environmental Restoration Projects. Salty Topics is presented the 1st Thursday of each month at 7pm during the academic year. Going Coastal Programs include programs on many topics. Register and view events above.
University of Florida IFAS Extension is playing a leading role in helping citizens, governments, and industry make well-informed choices in the face of a changing climate. We strive to identify key project partners, facilitate discussion in the scientific community, and engage the public regarding the science and data.
