Coastal Education and Outreach

Earth Day outreach booth

Educating the public who enjoy our coastal areas, as well as local governments and land managers, about the importance of coastal areas for wildlife habitat in addition to public use is an important goal for FWC.

The FWC has partnered with numerous local organizations at public outreach events, including the International Coastal Cleanup, Marine Quest, Earth Day, and many others. The FWC also provides presentations to groups about many coastal issues.
