Save the Date: Attend Round 2 Public Workshop Informing Development of the
South Coast Marine Protected Areas Monitoring Plan


**To receive general updates and other information, please sign up for the Monitoring Enterprise listserv at monitoringenterprise.org.

The MPA Monitoring Enterprise, in cooperation with the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG), invites you to attend the second round of public workshops to inform the development of the Marine Protected Area (MPA) Monitoring Plan for the South Coast region (Point Conception to the California/Mexico border).

The first round of public workshops, held in July 2010, described the monitoring framework and the anticipated process and timeline for developing the plan, and gathered public input on South Coast MPA monitoring perspectives and priorities. An overview of those workshops is available on the Monitoring Enterprise website: www.calost.org/South_Coast.html.

At the second round of workshops, Monitoring Enterprise staff will:
  • Present and answer questions on: 1) draft monitoring metrics for assessing ecosystem conditions and trends, and 2) draft questions to evaluate MPA design and management decisions; and
  • Invite written comment on the draft metrics and questions, at and/or following the workshops.

The workshops will take place in three locations in the South Coast region (all times are approximately 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM). All workshops will have the same format and agenda. The Monitoring Enterprise will post the agenda, venue information, and other advance meeting materials on the Monitoring Enterprise website at least one week prior to the workshops:
    • Monday, November 8: Santa Barbara
    • Wednesday, November 10: Culver City
    • Monday, November 15: Carlsbad

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by Friday, October 29 to Christine Lim (clim@kearnswest.com or 415-391-7900) with the date/location you will attend. Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by October 29.

Please feel free to forward this email to other members of the public who would be interested in attending. Please contact Christine Lim (see email address above) with any questions. For more information about the MPA Monitoring Enterprise, please visit http://calost.org/monitoring_ent.html
