Project Description

Extension, Outreach and Education (EOE) for land protection and conservation education is important to ensure conservation and restoration of coastal systems. This project will provide an EOE program in Mississippi that will ensure that the objectives and purposes of land conservation towards habitat stewardship and water quality improvement are being met by funding EOE activities with interested groups that have critical roles in land conservation and restoration. This project will serve as a pilot project for the Council to consider expanding Gulf-wide when future funds become available.
