Become a Supporting Organization

To achieve the Goals identified by the Coalition, we will need the support of many agencies, institutions, organizations, and individuals. Recreation groups, land trusts, commercial fishing groups, tourism and economic development councils, municipalities, sporting groups, small businesses and large corporations are examples of the many diverse partners that can work together to achieve the Goals described in this Framework.
