Social Media Guidelines
The State Coastal Conservancy considers its social media and other online discussion platforms (such as its websites, webinar chat rooms and Facebook pages) to be limited public forums for the respectful exchange of ideas and information between the Conservancy and members of the public. These forums are intended to address topics that are part of the Conservancy’s work, such as resource conservation, restoration, coastal access, and other specific topics the Conservancy shares on its platforms.
