The Rocky Shores Working Group of Oregon’s Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC) is meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 1-4 p.m. in the Gleeson Room of the Oregon Coast Aquarium (2820 S.E. Ferry Slip Rd.) in Newport.

OPAC has formed a working group to study these state’s current policies regarding tidepools and other rocky shore areas and consider revisions.  Background information on the planning initiative can be found on this OPAC site.  Oregon Shores has long argued that the state’s policies were out of date, and that the ones we do have were never fully implemented.  These hearings provide individuals, organizations, and local governments and opportunity to weigh in on needed protections for rocky shores.
