Estuarine Protection Through Public Participation

by William W. Dreyfoos, Dallis & Dreyfoos, Charleston, SC, USA,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87

Abstract:

Because public participation is such a time-honored component of the coastal resource management process, it is often easy to forget the pivotal role that citizen activism and public access to technical information can play in protecting coastal resources. The Charleston (SC) area is notable in that a variety of public participation techniques have worked effectively within a single geographical area, and have been largely responsible for the protection and preservation of the estuarine portions of six of the region's seven river systems.
