Habitat Restoration Steering Committee

Vision:

Restored oyster reefs and resilient shorelines that protect coastal communities, accommodate marsh migration (where appropriate), and support clean water, seafood, recreation and tourism.

Mission:

Strengthen and restore estuarine habitat complexes including oyster reefs, marsh, riparian buffers, and living shorelines through collaborative projects that provide sustained ecosystem services and economic value for the York River and Small Coastal Basins watersheds.
