The new initiative will develop a long-range strategy to protect and enhance the state’s waters, said a press release by the group. Guiding the coalition’s activities is a 16-member steering committee divided into a number of working groups. Leading the Research, Education and Outreach working group is CFAES Dean Bruce McPheron. In all, some 30 stakeholder organizations are involved. More are expected. Plans include a statewide public poll to gather input to direct future efforts and a statewide series of learning events. For more information: Larry Antosch, lantosch@ofbf.org.
