This year, NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries is hosting its fifth national Get into Your Sanctuary celebration to raise awareness about the value of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary as an iconic destination for responsible recreation through a series of special activities. On August 2-4 the Sanctuary Exploration Center will host “Fishy First Friday.” On August 3rd, the Coastal Discovery Center will host fun, hands-on naturalist led activities.  And to literally get into the sanctuary, hop on a kayak with Monterey Bay Kayaks, August 3rd to join the “Responsible Wildlife Viewing Festival.”  For more details, click here.

There will also be a photo contest which is a great opportunity to show off your adventures in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. To learn more about the photo contest, click here.
