The purpose of the Forum is to highlight the powerful connection between science and management decisions in restoration efforts. The public's investment in science is paying off in support of better management decisions and restoration of imperiled south Florida Ecosystems, including the internationally recognized, globally significant Everglades. The Forum affords a unique opportunity for elected officials and other policy- and decision-makers, along with the general public, to see - under one roof - highlights of the most significant restoration science and management efforts underway.

The Forum promotes the link between science and management. Scientists and decision-makers will come together to discuss the needs of each in order to ensure that plans for restoration are based in science and are the most cost-effective and highest quality possible. Continued vigilance over south Florida ecosystems is essential to prevent further harm and to restore them.

Representatives from numerous federal, state, local, and non-governmental entities are organizing the Forum for the Science Coordination Team of the South Florida Ecosystem Working Group. The U.S. Geological Survey and the south Florida Water Management District are the primary hosts of the Forum.
