4/18/19 Eco-Expert Series titled "Who Manages that Land?" with Dr. Kelly Dunning

This presentation will cover who owns what land on the South Texas coast, and what policy, laws, and actors are involved in protecting, managing, and developing the coast. People may see a new condo or parking lot go up over night and wonder, "who owns that land?" That is often a complex question with an equally complex answer that tends to vary state by state and involves federal, state, local, and private actors. Dr. Kelly Dunning, a research scientist at the University of Texas Austin Marine Science Institute will help answer these questions and more in the South Texas context. Dr. Dunning holds a PhD in natural resource management from MIT, and specializes in issues of resource management policy. She runs the Coastal Training Program of the Mission Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve which exists to translate scientific topics to policy-makers to aid in resource management decision-making
