PREP is planning on holding TAC meetings every six weeks between now and June, 2017. Each meeting will focus on one or more indicators that we are tracking to understand how our estuaries are doing. Announcements will be sent out via e-mail and will also be announced on the PREP website. Here will you find all past meeting materials, any questions please contact Kalle Matso at email@example.com.

Meeting notes (coming soon)
*The PREP presentation is meant to articulate questions, concepts, and connections that PREP is considering as it develops the next State of Our Estuaries Report. All information presented is considered preliminary until it is published by PREP in December 2017.
