Chapter General Public Meeting
Thursday, September 11, 2008 at 7:00 PM 

Pacifica at the Pedro Point Firehouse

Learn the latest on the Marine Life Protection Act from former Fitzgerald Marine Reserve ranger Bob Breen. Bob will advise us how we can influence the outcome of one of the most significant acts of environmental protection legislation in years. Planned legislation is a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for the North Central Coast stretching from Pigeon Point north past Point Arena. Help gain protection for our wonderful coast! Bob has long experience with implementing and enforcing protected areas.

Bob will inform us on upcoming initiative aimed at realizing goals of the 1999 Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) directing the state to design and manage a network of marine protected areas that protects marine life and habitats, marine ecosystems, and marine natural heritage. It also improves the recreational, educational and study opportunities provided by marine ecosystems.

Join us and learn about the next steps for putting these MPAs “in the water” and learn how you can make your voice heard at the upcoming Fish and Game hearings in Santa Rosa on October 2 & 3.
