Waterside Chat With Joel Johnson

The Marine Fish Conservation Network's Waterside Chat series connects people who depend on healthy oceans and fisheries with the issues that directly affect them and their communities.

Join us for the Network’s livestream series, Waterside Chat, on September 22, 2023 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern, for a conversation with Joel Johnson, president and CEO of the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

The foundation is a leading voice for U.S. protected waters, working with communities to conserve and expand those special places for a healthy ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes. The foundation safeguards species and the places they call home, and preserves America’s maritime history.

Some of the topics Host Tom Sadler and Johnson will cover include:

  • What’s new at the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation
  • His plans for the coming year at the foundation
  • Updates on marine sanctuary designations, including the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary
