Workshop held to increase restoration project successJanuary 13th, 2014 | Category: News, Past Sessions, Training
Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) and Weeks Bay NERR partnered to offer a one-and-a-half day workshop, Coastal Restoration Project Design and Evaluation, on Jan 9-10, 2014. This class was taught by Pam Kylstra from NOAA Coastal Services Center.
Twenty-eight participants attended the workshop, including federal, county, and state agencies, university/colleges, non-profit groups, the private sector, and consultants that are doing work along the Gulf coast. This interactive, one and a half day workshop offers restoration professionals valuable knowledge, skills, and tools to enhance your ability to design targeted projects that have a greater chance of achieving success. This workshop is not intended to present the components of ecological restoration, but rather a project planning framework that will increase restoration project success.
This workshop was also offered by Apalachicola NERR on Jan 7-8, 2014 and was a follow-up to the three-day course, Principles of Ecological Restoration, that Grand Bay, Weeks Bay, and Apalachicola NERRs hosted for restoration specialists and managers.
