During this spring the NY State Seagrass Taskforce has been meeting to discus issues relating to the mapping, management, restoration and protection of eelgrass in NY waters. For a list of taskforce members, meeting agendas and to view the enabling NYS legislation see the NYS Seagrass Taskforce web page. Laura Stephenson (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the NYSDEC is responsible for providing all content for this site.
Much of the work of the taskforce is being guided by information gathered at a New York State Seagrass Experts Meeting held on May 22, 2008. See the meeting report here. Recent agenda items for the taskforce have included mapping protocols, research topics, boat mooring alternatives and funding for various projects. See the web page for a link to all agendas, to date.
