The Rocky Shores Working Group of the Ocean Policy Advisory Council will meet in Newport on April 16 to continue their review of Oregon’s policies protecting our rocky shore intertidal areas.  The meeting takes place from 9 a.m. to noon in the Gleason Room of the Oregon Coast Aquarium (2820 S.E.

The working group is reviewing all of Oregon’s policies governing rocky shores, as part of the state’s Territorial Sea Plan.  For more information on this ongoing process, see our article.
