The National Aquarium in Baltimore will be hosting a free screening and the Maryland premiere of the film “Ocean Frontiers II” on the evening of February 20th. The Maryland Coastal Bays Program will be participating in the event with an information table and we invite all of our friends, volunteers and supporters to join us in Baltimore for a fun-filled night for our ocean.
“Ocean Frontiers II” tells the story of how New England, a region steeped in maritime tradition, is facing a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, and how residents – both old and new – are coming together to plan for a healthy ocean off their coast. Check out the Trailer:
The lessons learned in New England will help guide efforts here to chart a new path for the Mid-Atlantic’s long-term health. A Q&A panel discussion with state and regional ocean experts will follow, including:
- Kathy Broadwater, Deputy Executive Director, Maryland Port Administration
- Jay Odell, Mid-Atlantic Marine Program Director, The Nature Conservancy
- Gwynne Schultz, State Co-Lead, Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body and a member of the MCBP Board of Directors.
This new effort that is taking hold all along the Atlantic – called coordinated ocean planning – brings together all of us who use and love the ocean to help develop a plan for the ocean’s future use and protection, so that we can count on a healthy ocean for our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
The event is hosted by the National Aquarium and sponsored by the Natural Resources Defense Council.
