Washington Sea Grant led engagement activities and provided support for ten public meetings and fifteen local presentations in Washington coastal communities to educate new participants and update coastal stakeholders. They also coordinated scientific and technical input through the Science Advisory Panel to help ensure that the best available science is used to develop the marine spatial plan. Sea Grant coordinated and facilitated work sessions including coastal community members, tribal representatives, and state, federal, and local agency staff to draft goals and objectives for the planning process.
