The Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park and the Maine Coastal Program are partnering to bring this two-day NOAA training to the coast of Maine. Learn how to plan and facilitate collaborative meetings that get results for coastal communities and the natural environments that support them. Participants working at every level to effectively engage stakeholders in their work will benefit from this training. FMI visit this link.
