FI Seagrass Management Coalition Meeting

January 30 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Fishers Island Seagrass Management Coalition will be holding its next meeting on Wednesday, January 30th, from 1-4 pm at the HL Ferguson Museum.

All are welcome to attend the first half of the meeting (1-2:30 pm), during which we will have as our guest speaker David Prescott, the South County Coastkeeper for Save The Bay in Rhode Island. He will be speaking about the impacts of coastal structures on seagrass habitats.

A full agenda is to follow.

To RSVP to the Coalition meeting, or to learn more about seagrass in general, please contact Emily Bodell at fishersislandseagrass@gmail.com or call 631-788-7239.

In 2017, the H.L. Ferguson Museum, the Fishers Island Conservancy, and The Nature Conservancy partnered to convene a Fishers Island community-based seagrass management (FISM) coalition. The goal of the coalition is to establish a co-management process for the island’s seagrass meadows, one in which the island community and the state would share seagrass management authority and responsibility.
