The Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership (PREP), a joint program of local, state and federal agencies housed in UNH’s marine program, will host its “State of Our Estuaries” conference Friday Dec. 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Portsmouth Harbor Events and Conference Center.  

Highlighting the release of PREP’s 2013 State of Our Estuaries report, the conference will feature up-to-date information on 22 environmental indicators that contribute to the overall health of the Seacoast New Hampshire and Southern Maine region’s coastal waters.

Themed “Coming Together for Clean Water Solutions,” the all-day program will include success stories and case studies from individuals and businesses currently working together to conserve natural areas, reduce pollution, and restore bays and rivers. 

"Every three years, we develop a State of Our Estuaries report and conference which helps us all better understand the health of our local waters and Great Bay and Hampton-Seabrook estuaries. We look forward to presenting the 2013 report to such a broad range of stakeholders, partners and sponsors with a focus on solutions to the challenges we face”, said Rachel Rouillard, PREP’s director.
