Coastal Training Program at Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve Quick Topics

The Coastal Training Program (CTP) provides science-based knowledge, training, resources, and technical assistance to individuals responsible for making decisions that affect the coastal resources so vital to our watershed, our economy, and our way of life. We promote and facilitate community-based stewardship and conservation by engaging leaders, managers, professionals, business owners, and residents in gaining knowledge of the Reserve. We draw expertise from both federal and state levels, channeling it to the local community. Topics include: shoreline protection, green infrastructure, bay friendly living, coastal resilience, and ecosystem services.

CTP works collaboratively with local professional organizations such as floodplain managers, realtor´┐Żs associations, ecotour/fishing guides, small businesses, planning staff, and civic groups to positively increase environmental stewardship with in the ANERR watershed. CTP increases information exchange among local, state, and federal officials, community groups, individuals, and institutions from a variety from disciplines who affect coastal and estuarine ecosystems.

The CTP also works with the Gulf of Mexico Alliance to coordinated training efforts across the Gulf Coast states. To learn more about coordinated Gulf-wide Coastal Training Initiatives and events, see the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Training website: www.gulfalliancetraining.org.
