Hello North Coast Region! Let’s eat, drink, and talk science! 

Myself and the Northcoast Environmental Center are hosting an “MPA Night” at Humboldt Bay Provisions, Saturday February 4th during Arts Alive from 6pm – 8pm. This is an informal “science mixer” to share the importance and relevance of MPAs with the public in a fun way.

Please consider this an open invitation to attend and/or share your baseline research. I encourage you to bring materials such as photos, posters, handouts, etc, but it is not necessary. 

Please RSVP delia@yournec.org by January 31 so I can make necessary accommodations.
