Herring River Stakeholder Group (HRSG)

Created by and reporting directly to the Herring River Executive Council, the Herring River Stakeholder Group’s purpose is to communicate with stakeholders within the towns of Wellfleet and Truro to ensure that their respective interests and views are well represented and considered by the HREC. The Group also provides advisory input to the HREC on key implementation issues such as vegetation management, traffic management, recreational access, environmental monitoring, adaptive management and general community concerns.
