Join WiLDCOAST at the Tijuana River Valley Recovery Team's "Recovery Strategy" workshop on Dec 7th

At the Tijuana Estuary on Dec 7th from 8:30am-12:30pm

Join WiLDCOAST at the Tijuana River Valley Recovery Team's workshop at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (TRNERR) where the draft Recovery Strategy for the Tijuana River Valley will be presented and discussed.

The Recovery Strategy is a document that outlines the first phase of actions required to clean up the Valley so its beneficial uses can be restored and its environmental resources maintained. It is also intended to outline the steps needed to move forward so policy makers and potential funding source representatives can have a clear understanding of both the problems and solutions that will allow the Recovery Team to achieve its mission.

The Recovery Team is a collaboration of more than 30 federal, state and local agencies and other interested organizations from both sides of the border focused on addressing sediment and trash and associated environmental issues. The purpose of the Recovery Strategy is to integrate in a collaborative stakeholder-led approach the diverse scientific, environmental, regulatory, and private stakeholder perspectives with existing planning documents to reduce impacts of sediment and trash on the Tijuana River Valley.

Community stakeholder input and recommendations in this process are essential. WiLDCOAST encourages all community members to participate. In preparation for the workshop and discussion, the document can be reviewed here: Read Recovery Strategy Draft Document
