CEINC has supported the following projects/programs to improve communication and foster cooperation between regulatory agencies, stakeholders, and landowners in the watershed:

  • Future of Humboldt Bay Bottomlands

    The Developing Shared Strategies for Sea‐level Rise Adaptation in Working Lands of Humboldt Bay and the Eel River Delta Project was funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC) Program to engage stakeholders to discuss community and science needs for planning and implementing adaptation measures to sea level rise. Project activities included establishing a steering committee and science and agricultural working groups with the goal of building community support towards a shared vision of the Humboldt Bay‐Eel River Delta ecosystem under future climate scenarios. Significantly more collaboration is necessary to outline and analyze the feasibility of sea level rise adaptation strategies including impacts to natural resources, agriculture, and infrastructure.
