Involving the public in the protection and restoration of the Narragansett Bay Estuary is an essential step in reaching water quality goals for this region. Toward this end, NEIWPCC assists with the outreach efforts of the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program.
The primary geographic scope of this activity is the Narragansett Bay watershed in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. The NBEP Outreach Coordinator is responsible for developing outreach strategies and products working with other NBEP staff, RIDEM staff, and project partners.
The goals of the outreach program are to educate the public and stakeholders about Narragansett Bay's ecology and management needs; to promote stewardship and citizen involvement; to facilitate communication and coordination with stakeholders and project partners; and to highlight the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) implementation activities and accomplishments. These goals will be achieved by use of print, radio, television, and Internet media; development and distribution of new outreach materials; and development and coordination of public events, presentations, and displays.
