Upcoming Community Events

The following event is part of a research project being conducted by political science assistant professor Matthew Nowlin, Susan Lovelace from the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium, and Justin Reedy from the University of Oklahoma. The overriding goal is to explore a new process for including a wide variety of views in natural resources planning.
