Through the Coastal Training Program (CTP), CBNERR addresses critical coastal resource management issues by providing up-to-date scientific information, access to technologies and skill-building opportunities to current decision makers and resource professionals. To make training opportunities available, CBNERR identifies and collaborates with local partners and effectively applies its own quality, unbiased and place-based research.

Identified Training Needs

Based on needs assessments and survey input from participants, the CTP focus areas include: (1) riparian buffers and wetlands; (2) shoreline management; and (3) water quality and water management.
