You are invited to a workshop hosted by MARCO and Surfrider Foundation, on behalf of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body’s No-consumptive Recreation Work Group, to engage the public in a discussion of the value of important non-consumptive recreational areas and the activities they sustain. Pizza and beverages will be served.

 

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) and Surfrider Foundation are co-hosting a series of four workshops throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to convene ocean recreational users to provide input to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body’s Non-Consumptive Recreation Work Group.  Workshops are being conducted in support of implementation of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan action: Identify, characterize, and share information about measures to maintain the recreational value of important non-consumptive recreational areas and the activities they sustain.

 

Workshop objectives:

 

  • To begin to define what it would mean for ocean and coastal uses and areas to be considered important for non-consumptive recreation;
  • To solicit ideas for a process to identify and assess potential impacts and use conflicts to important non-consumptive recreational uses from other human uses, as well as potential impacts and conflicts between non-consumptive recreational uses and marine and coastal resources; and
  • To explore ideas for effective two-way engagement processes to share information with and solicit input from ocean recreation users.

 

Please pre-register to make sure there is enough pizza!
