Congressman Charlie Crist to visit the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center

Release Date:

On May 6, 2019, Congressman Charlie Crist (13th district, FL) and Operations and Outreach Director Mr. Kendrick Lewis will visit the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC). Congressman Crist requested this visit because he is interested to learn more about the Center and to discuss needs/priorities that we may have.

Nathaniel Plant (Acting Center Director), Christopher Reich (Deputy Center Director), Vic Hines (Communications Chief), and Hilary Stockdon (CMHRP Science Advisor) will give an overview of the Center’s research mission. Due to limited time that the Congressman has in our Center, a few scientists will provide brief updates on current relevant research: Kara Doran, Lauren Toth, and Dave Zawada (research scientists, SPCMSC) will provide brief updates on their ongoing research related to the Hurricane and Wildfire Supplemental (HWST) funding. Rep. Crist and Mr. Lewis will be given a tour of the facility to show them our unique laboratory and fieldwork capabilities.
