We conduct science and public outreach that can be used to improve the conservation and management of coastal and marine resources.
Our extension programs are as diverse as our surroundings. We focus on strategic community outreach to reach our goals.
NCBS offers four unique services out of our facilities at Cedar Key. These services allow researchers of all ages to further their education and discover what the nature coast has to offer.
Working with communities to improve conservation.
Our faculty, staff and students are always working towards our common goals of research, teaching and extension.
Led by Savanna Barry and Leslie Sturmer, our extension programs make the most of the Nature Coast’s diversity and natural-resource-based economy. Programs include sustainable coastal recreation, coastal resilience and restoration, shellfish aquaculture, and environmental volunteerism.
