Ocean Recreation Guides

CMSF created waterproof ocean recreation guides to acquaint visitors to the coast, its animal inhabitants and the local protected areas. These guides are excellent for use in ocean recreation businesses, by interpreters and educators, and more! These guides contain local information, fun facts and pictures of species you’re likely to see on the water, maps, and local topics of interest. These are being laminated and bound as a self-guided PPT for use by businesses on the water, docents giving tours, etc.

If you are interested in customizing the files for your organization or business, please contact katelyn@californiamsf.org for an editable version.
