It has been more than eight years since the start of the BP oil spill. In that time, many steps have been taken to restore and recover the Gulf. This includes the approval of numerous plans, programs, and restoration projects. As Gulf restoration and recovery efforts continue to move forward, how can the public engage and help shape restoration?

To help members of the public better understand how to get involved, ELI, along with Environmental Management Services, Mississippi Commercial Fisheries United, and Public Lab, co-sponsored an event on “Engaging in the Gulf Restoration Processes: How the Public Can Help Shape Restoration.” The goal of this event was to provide participants with tools and information that they can use to more effectively engage in the restoration and recovery efforts.
