The USGS participated in the third annual Oceans Day celebration held on February 13 at the State Capitol Rotunda in Tallahassee, FL. The Florida Institute of Oceanography (FIO) organized the event for the marine research institutions and commercial interests that focus on Florida's oceans. Dennis Krohn (St. Petersburg) and Jane Eggleston (WRD, Tallahassee District Office) staffed the USGS booth and met with the public and Congressional staff.

This year the Florida legislature met earlier than usual. The legislators must draw new district boundaries because Florida acquired two new Congressional seats in the 2000 census. The Oceans Day 2002 committee was aware of the redistricting meeting and had made a special effort to provide well-placed notices of the Oceans Day exhibit throughout the Capitol. Because of the technical nature of issues facing the legislature, people were especially interested in USGS products and asked many questions. Brochures on how to obtain aerial photographs and satellite images from the USGS were particularly popular. Jane Eggleston spent the entire day at the display and was invaluable in providing assistance and knowledge of water programs.
