The California Central Coast MPA exhibit was created to introduce the public to the magnificence of this unique, new network of protected ocean areas.
This 16-Panel display began as a traveling exhibit and was shown at local central coast museums, state parks, and public venues. Today, portions of the exhibit are on permanent display at Año Nuevo State Park, the Morro Bay Museum, and Morro Bay Nature Center.

This 3-panel exhibit was created in 2010 as a condensed version of the original 16-panel display. The exhibit was displayed at both the BLUE Ocean Film Festival in Monterey and at the California and the World Ocean conference in San Francisco and is now available for display throughout California. These attractive panels describe the purpose of MPAs, provide maps of the MPAs designated in the central and north coast regions, and briefly explain the science that supports them. The lightweight, 3’ x 4’ panels fit perfectly on easels for an attractive display. También está disponible en español
