Open Virtual Meeting – Citizen Participation Opportunities & Projects for 2021
Estuario invites the public to join an open meeting at 6PM on February 18, 2021 through Zoom. We will present the planned and scheduled projects for the year 2021, which will provide opportunities for public participation, capacity building, personal betterment and community organization. These projects would not be possible without the participation and support of stakeholders, community leaders, citizen scientists and volunteers throughout the SJBE watershed.
