NOAA announces $5 million to design a new visitor center for Mallows Bay-Potomac River National Marine Sanctuary
NOAA intends to invest $5 million to support the design of a staff office and visitor center for the recently established Mallows Bay-Potomac River National Marine Sanctuary. These facilities would help the sanctuary conduct day-to-day operations from an efficient location, and enable recreation, education and community benefits provided by sanctuary management. When built, the new visitor center will connect other local and regional recreation and heritage tourism opportunities, and is expected to be accessible by public transportation to allow for broad public access.
Take pride in yourself and take pride in your national marine sanctuary by joining Mallows Bay–Potomac River National Marine Sanctuary as we celebrate Ocean Month and LGBT Pride Month in conjunction with the #PrideInTheOcean campaign! This no-cost event seeks only to honor and commemorate the month.
