Project Title:

Tidal Wetlands Management Technical Support

Project Description:

The project provides operational support for tidal wetlands management technical support provided by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science Center for Coastal Resources Management staff.  The project will specifically support:

1) Education/Outreach: Includes a workshop on the VIMS campus, the production and distribution of CCRM E-News and Rivers and Coast publications, and support for social media via the CCRM facebook page.

2) Technical Guidance: Provision of advice to shoreline property owners, shoreline professionals, local government staff, state agency personnel and NGO staff as well as input to the VIMS advisory activities coordinated by the Office of Research and Advisory Service. This effort includes web service of historical permit records.  In addition, we will continue to maintain two databases.  One for tracking the provision of technical advice and the second to track permit data and decisions. We are continuing to enhance the second database by continuing to create a georeferenced location for all historical permits.
