University of North Carolina, Wilmington Chapter of The Coastal Society


The UNCW Chapter is organized for the educational purposes of: promoting knowledge, understanding, and wise use of coastal environments; fostering interdisciplinary cooperation and communication among professionals, interest groups, and individuals concerning coastal environments; encouraging wise use of coastal resources consistent with the dynamic natural processes of coastal environments; and providing public information on the importance of effective research and management programs. The UNCW Chapter aims to provide a meaningful forum for interaction between professionals and students. This shall be accomplished by hosting guest speakers selected from local, state, and national environmental professionals, and events such as beach sweeps and environmental/coastal movie screenings. The UNCW Chapter will partner with other organizations with a similar mission.
