We’d like to thank everyone who has provided input as part of the development of the Cape Falcon Management Plan – we’ve had lots of participation. From the many North Coast residents who attended workshops this past fall, to one on one conversations that provided many innovative ideas – we appreciate all of the input. We also tested out a new tool to get feedback via online survey and had 54 people participate.
Currently, we are coalescing all the information received to date. The input we have received is being used to help develop communication and engagement strategies that:
- Keep you up to date on happenings and findings at Cape Falcon,
- Further develop ways to engage communities, and
- Help us strengthen compliance and enforcement at Cape Falcon.
We are also documenting local community interests for activities above and beyond what is being carried out by ODFW at Cape Falcon. By highlighting the communities’ interests in the management plan, we hope to attract additional research and resources to foster future projects in and around Cape Falcon Marine Reserve.
We will have a draft of the Cape Falcon Management Plan out in late summer for public comment.
