| Coastal Training Program

A Coastal Decision Maker is anyone makes decisions about coastal resources in a professional or volunteer capacity. The Coastal Training Program exists to support decision-makers to apply science in their decisions that affect natural resources. The North Inlet-Winyah Bay CTP operates in Horry and Georgetown Counties, SC. 

Locally Based

The Coastal Training Program was created to serve local audiences and local needs. Training is based on local case studies whenever possible. In 2021, the North Inlet-Winyah Bay conducted a formal survey of coastal decision makers, the results of which are available as a report. A 2-pager summarizing the full report is available here.

A 2007 Needs Assessment of Decision Makers in Coastal SC Counties is available here.
