All three forums will be lead by staff from Earth Economics who performed the ESV analysis and are open to the public.
The December 5 afternoon session will be targeted to County staff and officials and likely be more technical in nature.

The December 6 meeting presentation is part of the Straits Ecosystem Recovery Network meeting agenda, and will focus on the ESV pilot projects results for the Central Strait of Juan de Fuca nearshore area and next steps.
