Registration is free to Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), the nation’s premier ocean and Great Lakes policy conference hosted annually by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, which will be virtual this year and take place on June 9th. CHOW 2020 will focus on the global issue of protecting biodiversity.
CHOW will offer a full day of activities, including plenaries and concurrent breakout sessions on how science and technology are advancing our understanding of the marine environment, the role of protected areas in conserving biodiversity, and how to engage people as stewards. CHOW will showcase the work of ocean and Great Lakes partners through a virtual exhibit hall and are planning a social gathering through a virtual closing happy hour.
