The Blue Flag USA program is responsible for providing support and engagement to coastal communities on various topics to support the ideal of sustainable development through environmental education. Previously, staff held a national workshop at the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association’s 2021 National Coastal Conference. This year we are excited to host a 3 month series of meetings discussing sustainable beach management topics and themes in an effort to bring together candidate sites, awarded sites, industry, managers, stakeholders, and more to share experiences. Below you will find information about the summer series as it becomes available.
