Dr. Melinda Donnelly of the University of Central Florida will present on “Shoreline Characterization of Brevard and Volusia County” for the November public lecture at the Marine Discovery Center.

The presentation is set for Thursday, Nov. 15, starting at 6 p.m. The event is hosted by the Marine Discovery Center, located at 520 Barracuda Boulevard in New Smyrna Beach.

The presentation will share results of shoreline surveys conducted around the entire 350-plus-mile length of shorelines for Brevard County and southern Volusia County in the Mosquito Lagoon.

Surveys were used to evaluate the extent of hard-armoring (seawalls and bulkheads) and other human changes to shorelines and were conducted in an effort to identify and prioritize restoration needs in these two coastal counties.

Donnelly is a post-doctoral scholar at UCF and was the principle investigator for the shoreline work conducted in the surveys.

The lecture is open to the public at no charge. No reservations are required.
Early arrival is recommended ~ seating is limited.
