West Coast EBM Network Publishes New Guide: Community-based Management
The West Coast EBM Network has published a new guide: 'Community-based Management of Coastal Ecosystems'. The guide highlights successful examples of ecosystem-based management (EBM) on the West Coast, including Ventura, CA and Port Orford, OR - both of which have great Surfrider participation. Co-sponsored by the NOAA Coastal Services Center, the Network brings together six community projects to share best practices and exchange lessons learned. Areas of focus include stakeholder engagement, collaborative science, and ecosystem protection and restoration. To learn more about the West Coast EBM Network, please click here.

Thanks to John Hanson (EBM Network), Paul Jenkin (Ventura, CA), Kathy Greer (Grays Harbor, WA), Leesa Cobb (Port Orford, OR) and Pete Stauffer (Port Orford, OR) and many others for their efforts on this project!
