Science Work Group

The Science Work Group is a forum to exchange scientific information about the estuary. The group provides support, scientific and technical advice to the Estuary Partnership. Its goal is to ensure there is a consistent approach to the collection of scientific data, and to design and implement technical programs that advance the actions in the Estuary Partnership Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.

Who We Are

The Science Work Group is open to all who are interested in advancing the actions in the Estuary Partnership's Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. Typical representatives include tribal, federal, state and local agencies; academe, private sector scientists, interested parties and private sector concerns. The Board of Directors' liaison to the Science Work Group is Yvonne Vallette (US EPA), and the Estuary Partnership’s Chief Scientist Catherine Corbett is staff to the work group.
