A workshop will be held at VIMS for local government staff, advisory board members, marine contractors, permitting agents, environmental consultants, and anyone else interested in decision-making along tidal shorelines in the Commonwealth.

Planned Workshop Sessions

• CCRM Living Shorelines Updated Website
• Coastal Management Decision Tree for Currently Defended Shorelines
• Development of the Hampton Waterway Management Plan
• Joint Resolution Study of Shoreline Management in Virginia
• Living Shoreline Monitoring Project
• Derelict Crab Pot Recovery Update
• York River Survey
• and other updates!

In addition to the projects described in the Fall 2010 Virginia Wetlands Report, we will have a session at the workshop on an effort funded by the Coastal Zone Management Program that directs CCRM to study existing approaches for collecting and delivering information that supports shoreline management planning.  To enable us to provide information in the most cohesive manner possible, audience feedback will be requested.  Examples from current methods will be reviewed and the audience will be asked to value the content and format of each presentation.

(Remember to bring a sweater for the auditorium.)
