The Sonoma Marin Coastal Prairie Workshop was a one-day workshop that brought together agencies, researchers, managers, landowners, and other interested community members to identify needs and priorities for coastal prairie conservation, protection and restoration in coastal Sonoma and Marin Counties. The workshop is organized by the Sonoma Coastal Grasslands Working Group, which facilitates collaborations among partners dedicated to conserving, protecting and restoring coastal grasslands. The goal of the workshop was to develop a list of prioritized projects (research, educational, management and preservation) for coastal prairie in coastal Sonoma and Marin counties. During the morning session, workshop participants received information from experienced researchers, managers and educators on coastal prairie management and ecology. In the afternoon, participants developed common goals for prairie conservation and prioritized a list of important steps for action. The resulting document will be made available to workshop participants and others to create awareness of coastal prairie issues, enhance cooperation, and seek collaborative funding for coastal prairie projects in our region.
