Marine Sanctuary public meeting, Weds Oct 28

Press release

By on Sun, October 25, 2009

You are invited to attend a meeting to learn about ideas for a proposed Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center along the San Mateo County coast. The meeting will be October 28, 2009; 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Ocean Shore Train Depot, 110 Higgins Canyon Road, Half Moon Bay.

Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary is very excited about having a stronger presence within the Coastside community, and hope the proposed Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center will reflect the unique character, beauty and natural history of this area - the seaside community and unique interface of land and sea in this northern area of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. To that end, we invite your feedback on the concepts being proposed for the Visitor Center exhibits.

The concepts have been developed by grass roots community members including educators, fishermen, merchants, restaurateurs, surfers, biologists, and design professionals—and members of the Farallones marine sanctuary’s advisory council.
