The West Coast EBM Network is a partnership of community-based initiatives on the U.S. West Coast focused on proactive management of local coastal ecosystems.  In this webinar, the network coordinator and representatives from initiatives in the Network discussed members’ efforts at real-world implementation of EBM and highlight common real-world steps for achieving EBM in local settings with a range of coastal issues and management priorities.  Network representatives also discussed the Network’s new guide, Community-Based Management of Coastal Ecosystems, which summarizes the work of the Network, its members, and distinct steps towards community-supported EBM.  Learn more about the network and read the new guide at
