CultchJoin the Coastal Federation and N.C. Oyster Steering Committee for a two-day workshop focused on updating the N.C. Oyster Blueprint: An Action Plan for Restoration and Protection.

This workshop will solicit input and feedback from engaged stakeholders to inform the next edition of the Oyster Blueprint. At the workshop, we will present draft goals and actions for the Blueprint. Facilitated discussions will help to highlight key actions that should be planned and prioritized for the next five years of oyster work in the state.

As part of the workshop, participants will:
   • Review and agree upon a vision for the fourth edition of the N.C. Oyster Blueprint
   • Understand stakeholder’s views about
        - the perceived benefits that oysters provide,
        - perceived threats to oysters in the state and
        - suggestions for action that should be taken to improve conditions moving forward
   • Consider revised actions to work toward in the next five-year edition of the N.C. Oyster Blueprint, based on agreed upon strategies.

The registration fee of $25 will be used to cover participants’ lunch on Monday and room rental fees associated with holding the workshop.
