About Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program

The Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program (CTP) is part of a national CTP initiative sponsored by the National Estuarine Reserves Division of NOAA. The goal of the Coastal Training Program is to improve decision-making related to coastal resources management at local and regional levels. The program aims to provide coastal decision makers with knowledge and tools they need to address critical resource management issues.

At the local level the Elkhorn Slough CTP is implemented through a cooperative multi-agency effort based at the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR). This local CTP is managed by a program coordinator and multi-agency steering committee. This steering committee involves important coastal and community leaders in the decision making and planning of the CTP. The steering committee meetings are open to the public. Dates, times, and agendas for meetings are included in the list of training sessions posted on the CTP web site.
