World Oceans Day is an international celebration spearheaded by the UN to bring awareness to the importance of our oceans and the threats they face. We are gearing up for this year’s celebration on June 8! Though we can’t do a big party like we have in years past, we have a suite of ways to celebrate our coastal community, and share our love of the oceans with you. From a Dock Talk with Newport Mayor Napolitano to a week’s worth of Instagram giveaways, there is something for everyone to learn about our oceans & how to protect them. We are so excited to partner with our local business community for the Weekend of Community Giving and upcoming giveaways. Their support- and yours!- helps us keep our coasts clean and healthy. As caretakers of our local coastlines, COA invites you to celebrate with us.
