On September 27, 2012, the Coastal Engagement Studio participants presented to the Cedar Key Chamber of Commerce at the Cedar Key Library. Doug McDuffie and Stephanie Zarkis presented past and current coastal changes, the potential impacts of future sea level rise, and the unique economic challenges that Cedar Key may face. The discussion following the presentation was highly engaging. Residents of Cedar Key discussed issues regarding infrastructure, conservation, and tourism. The studio participants gained many insights into local concerns for the island city of Cedar Key. Below is a 19-minute video of the presentation, and here are the slides.
