NERR Site Coordination Committee

Primary tasks for the NERR Site Selection Committees include: building state-wide and regional support for the Green Bay NERR; developing and implementing a public outreach and engagement plan for the Site Selection and Nomination process; establishing crtieria for selecting sites for the reserve; delineating the boundaries of the reserves; preparing a Site Nomination Document for submission to the Governor's Office once a site has been selected. The work of the site selection process will be distributed among three work groups: a Site Coordination Committee, Site Development Committee, and Site Evaluation Committee.
