Ecosystem Resilience (SEACER)

The fourth annual urban coastal research symposium “Socio-Economic Analyses of Coastal Ecosystem Resilience” was a noteworthy event held on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 at Loyola Marymount University with over 150 members of the public, scientists, agency representatives, and students in attendance.  This event, co-sponsored by the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission (SMBRC) and the Center for Urban Resilience at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), created an opportunity for the public to hear and participate in presentations by speakers from throughout southern California who reported on the results of their data and projects relating to social and economic benefits specific to coastal restoration and open space or greening projects.  Presentation topics ranged from wetland restoration to Marine Protected Areas (MPA) and watershed-level greening efforts.
