PUBLIC MEETINGS ON N.C. ESTUARINE RESEARCH RESERVES POSTPONED
RALEIGH – The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has postponed two public meetings scheduled for April 21 in Wilmington and April 22 in Beaufort. The federal agency had planned the meetings in conjunction with its periodic review of the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve and its four sites: Currituck Banks on the Outer Banks, Rachel Carson near Beaufort, and Masonboro Island and Zeke’s Island near Wilmington.
Due to recent restrictions on state employee travel, NOAA has decided to postpone the public meetings until Reserve staff and other partners are able to attend. A notice will be released when the meetings are rescheduled.
For additional information, contact N.C. National Estuarine Research Reserve manager Rebecca Ellin at 252-838-0880.
