Back to Basics Workshop on BP Oil Spill Restoration

Casi Callaway talks with community members about BP spill restoration at a National Fish And Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) meeting in Coden, Al.

Since that fateful April day in 2010, we have been working to address the impacts from the BP Oil Disaster by making a transformational change across our beautiful Gulf Coast. Your involvement has ensured a significant amount of the funding has gone to projects that make a positive difference for our communities, economy and our natural resources, but there is much more to do.

The Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council is hosting a back to basics, in-depth discussion on restoration on Wednesday, July 18th. If you were involved early and dropped out of the discussion or are just now ready to get engaged, this workshop will teach you how the Trustees, as well as our state and federal agencies are working to restore the Gulf with oil spill funding.

Please attend the Development Assessment 101 workshop held by Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council to learn about the Gulf’s natural resource damage report, how restoration programs are organized and how to submit your own restoration project ideas. 

WHEN:
Wednesday, July 18th
5:30-6:00pm - Natural Resources Development Assessment 101
7:30-9:00pm - From Concept to Project

WHERE:
Marriott Courtyard Gulfport Beachfront, 1600 E Beach Blvd., Gulfport, MS  

RSVP:
Please email the Trustee Council directly to reserve your seat.

$8.8 billion are available under the Natural Resource Damage Assessment to restore the places and wildlife damaged by the spill.

Volunteers look at restored oyster reef near Dog River.

Gulfport is only 75 miles away so please plan to join us. We are asking the NRDA Trustees to host a workshop in Mobile in the very near future and will keep you updated on when that can happen.
