The Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body’s Marine Debris Work Group is charged with developing and implementing a marine debris reduction strategy as outlined on page 43 of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Action Plan (https://www.boem.gov/Mid-Atlantic-Regional-Ocean-Action-Plan/). The work group is holding a workshop for regional leaders in reducing marine debris to:


  • Learn the results of a survey of RPB members as to which debris type and what project approach they think would be most feasible to base a regional strategy upon
  • Explore and develop several options based on those results for presentation to the RPB at its June 20 meeting.
  • Discuss resources potentially available to implement whichever strategy the RPB chooses.


We hope that you will be able to join us for this important workshop. A webinar option may be available for portions of the meeting, but we encourage people to attend in person. The workshop is free.  Lunch will not be provided, but there are many food vendors on Main Street.
