The coastal zone is home to multiple uses, from critical habitats to essential infrastructure, and from private development to public access; at times these uses work together, while at other times they are at odds. Given the quickly evolving coastal landscape, whether due to natural forces or human activity, conflicts over shoreline management and development present an opportunity to find creative solutions to current and emerging challenges.

This EBC 4th Annual Ocean and Coastal Resources Regional Agency Update will present a panel of New England regulators discussing each state’s perspective on these issues, how it balances disparate interests, and what it sees for the future of the coastal zone.

Attend not only to hear what they share, but also come equipped with your own questions to foster an informative meeting and advance our industry together.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
