New Film Explores Ocean Planning on Washington's Pacific Coast

“Why should recreational users care about marine spatial planning?” 

This was the question posed by filmmakers Chris Hannant and Gillian Montgomery as they traveled Washington’s Pacific coast over a ten day trip this past July. The film combines beautiful scenery of the Olympic Peninsula with interviews of Surfrider members and other coastal stakeholders. The key takeaway -  surfers, beachgoers and other recreational users have a golden opportunity to protect special places along Washington's coast through marine spatial planning.
