The State of Oregon is soliciting input on the Territorial Sea Plan, the framework through which state and federal agencies manage rocky coastal habitat. Part 3 of this plan, the Rocky Shores Management Strategy, aims to help sustain and support the use and health of rocky habitat resources. Approximately 41% of Oregon's 362-mile coastline is made up of the dramatic headlands, tide pools, rocky beaches, cliffs, and offshore rocks that fall under this category of habitat.

The management strategy is currently undergoing an update to assure its goals are being met, and the State is holding a series of public workshops to gather feedback. The Cape Perpetua workshop will consist of a brief presentation on the RSM Strategy and how it relates to local communities, followed by a question-and-discussion session.

For those who can't attend the workshop, the state also invites the public to fill out a general questionnaire here. More information is also available online here
