Spotlights the past and present decisions needed to balance human desires with the limits of what nature has to offer.

About this event

Fifty years ago Georgia chose how it would use the natural environment of its coast and the General Assembly passed the Coastal Marshlands Protection Act in 1970, and Governor Lester Maddox, signed it into law.

With this book, Paul Bolster narrates the politics of the times and brings to life the political leaders and the coalition of advocates who led Georgia to pass the most comprehensive protection of marshlands along the Atlantic seaboard. Paul’s account reviews the state policy, giving the reader an opportunity to compare yesterday to the present. Current demands on the coastal environment are different—including spaceports and sea rise from climate change-- but the political pressures to generate new wealth and new jobs, or to perch a home on the edge of the sea, are no different than fifty years ago.

Books will be for sale at the conclusion of the event.
