Early-bird registration for the Working Waterways and Waterfronts National Symposium on Water Access in Portland, Maine, runs through Aug. 15.

Building on the inaugural symposium in Norfolk, Va., in 2007, participants at this year's conference, which runs Sept. 27-30, will learn about the economic, social, cultural and environmental values of waterfronts, and the important role of water-dependent uses in sustainable coastal communities.

A walking tour of the Portland waterfront and optional field trips will highlight Maine's working waterfronts and local efforts to preserve water access that have become national models.

Symposium participants will work together to generate an agenda for maintaining and enhancing the nation's working waterfronts.
