It's National Estuary Week on the America shoreline so Peter and Tyler take you to the Florida panhandle's beautiful Emerald Coast with its stunning beaches and incredible estuaries. ASP welcomes Jim Trifilio, Director of the Pensacola & Perdido Bays Estuary Program; Melinda Gates, Estuary Coalition Manager and Coastal Resource Liaison for Walton County; and, Jim Muller, Bay County RESTORE Act Coordinator. These three adjoining counties are blessed with some of the most unique beaches and bays in America -- crystal clear spring-fed rivers, brilliant white, quartz-sand beaches, and stunning pines and dune swale ponds. But, significant development pressures loom and finding the balance between economic growth and protecting this unique coastal area is the work of these three estuary management officials. Kick off National Estuary week with ASPN and hear from three pros in the trenches. Great way to start the week!
