“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.  View the film's trailer here.

The lessons learned there 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

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.

This event is hosted by the National Aquarium and sponsored by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. The first 100 people to register will receive a voucher for free event parking at Lockwood Place Garage.
