In June, the CoastWatch webinar series is focusing on the state’s new Rocky Habitat Management Strategy and the “site designation” process that is just beginning.

On Wednesday, June 17, 6 p.m., we’ll be hosting Charlie Plybon, Surfrider’s policy director and also head of the Rocky Habitat Working Group that developed the new strategy; Dave Fox, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s rocky shores expert; and Michael Moses, the Land Conservation and Development Commission staffer who is managing the site designation process.

CoastWatch Volunteer Coordinator Jesse Jones will lead the discussion, which will cover current types of protective regulations along the Oregon coast, including those under the Territorial Sea Plan (of which the Rocky Habitat plan is a part), as well as other types of protections and regulatory  oversight; and understanding the new designation definitions in the new system, including what impact those designations will have when applied to a particular location. 

To join the webinar, contact Jesse Jones at jesse@oregonshores.org.  Near the date of the event, she will send a link to the Zoom location.  You don’t need to have your own Zoom account in order to participate.
