Interpretive MPA Signage Installed in Los Angeles
Guest post by Dana Murray, Heal the Bay and Los Angeles Collaborative Co-Chair

We just installed the first interpretive MPA signs in LA today!  These signs have been 3 years in the making, so it is great to see them come to fruition.

Los Angeles Collaborative members helped develop the content, made sure that the signs were bilingual (Spanish-English) and provided translation, and organized logistics for installation.  California Marine Sanctuary Foundation coordinated sign production and Ocean Protection Council staff handled permitting, making this a true team effort.

LA Collaborative Co-chair Phyllis Grifman of USC Sea Grant and Michael Quill of LA Waterkeeper joined me in the field to help with installation.

All MPA signs from Oregon to the Mexico border that are part of the statewide signage project have now been permitted for installation by the California Coastal Commission – so keep your eyes out for new signs along the coast.
