The Coastal Training Program (CTP) is a National Estuarine Research Reserve system-wide initiative designed to provide up-to-date scientific information, access to technologies, and skill-building opportunities to individuals responsible for coastal resource decision-making. The KBNERR CTP maintains partnerships with local communities, agencies, and science experts, while collaborating with colleagues nationwide at other Reserves. The program consists of workshops, skill training, webinars, and technical assistance. Assessments of community needs, emerging coastal research, and coastal management issues help shape training and workshop priorities. Information on previous training events can be found by accessing our past coastal training workshops.
