The implementation section of the Estuary Blueprint (view PDF) contains goals, objectives, and actions to guide the region toward a healthier Estuary. The goals provide the 35-year vision for the Estuary; the objectives detail desired outcomes that make progress toward achieving those goals; and the actions lay out a set of priority tasks for the next five years to reach one or more objective. The 32 actions meet multiple goals and objectives (see Nexus Table) and represent a cohesive, comprehensive approach to addressing frontiers and gaps in Estuary management.
The Estuary Blueprint also presents information on some of the foundational integration work behind the plan. Special spotlight sections on Estuary Blueprint integration explore how the Estuary Blueprint supports wildlife, resilience, and natural infrastructure. Section V (view PDF) highlights threatened and endangered species, and analyzes how specific actions intersect with four core management concepts: habitat recovery and protection, climate resiliency, migratory benefit, and invasive species reduction.
The funding analysis provides low and high cost estimates for the completion of every task in every action. The estimates are based on best available information and will be periodically refined as the region make progress towards implementing the actions.
