BETHANY BEACH – The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control invites ocean recreational users to participate in the Mid-Atlantic Non-Consumptive Recreation Workshop from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5 at the South Coastal Public Library at Bethany Beach, 43 Kent Avenue, Bethany Beach, DE 19930. Non-consumptive recreational use involves activities in which nothing is taken from the environment, such as paddlesports, boating, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, swimming, and beach going.
The workshop is part of a series of workshops being held throughout the region to share information and solicit input from the public about recreational use to support the implementation of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan.
The joint Delaware-Maryland workshop is hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO), of which DNREC’s Coastal Programs is the lead; the Surfrider Foundation; and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
