Sanctuary Explorations

The Sanctuary Explorations Series provides monthly opportunities for you to connect with, and experience, your national marine sanctuaries. Through these adventures we hope to inspire an ocean conservation ethic and wildlife etiquette through experiential learning while having fun and exploring the amazing habitats within and adjacent to the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. We hope you can join us for one of our upcoming Sanctuary Explorations!

For more information about the Sanctuary Exploration Series or to be added to our announcement list, please contact Carol Preston:
