Lauren WenzelBecome a well-informed citizen of Planet Earth!

Have you ever wondered how we protect our country’s marine resources?  The Environmental Committee invites you to a special presentation on our national system of Marine Protected Areas (MPA) by Lauren Wenzel, Director of NOAA’s National MPA Center.  Please join us in the EYC Conference Room.

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) protect some of the planet’s most spectacular places, but they serve more important reasons than preserving scenery. MPAs are effective tools for conserving ocean health - - which in turn promotes human health!

In this presentation, Lauren Wenzel will discuss how MPAs are used around the world for conservation, some of the major challenges they face, and how people can get involved in protecting important places - including the proposed National Marine Sanctuary at Mallows Bay.

Space is limited. Your RSVP helps us plan.
