This half-day workshop will examine the state of Ocean Planning on the West Coast, look at lessons learned from Ocean Planning efforts elsewhere in the country, and ask the tough questions about how environmental protection and maritime commerce can both benefit from an effective Ocean Planning strategy in California and beyond.
Speakers will include representatives from the US Coast Guard, the California Ocean Protection Council, NOAA, the Port of Oakland, the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, the Pacific Merchant Shipping Association, and more!
