For its second year in a row, the National Marine Sanctuary System and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation invite everyone for Get Into Your Sanctuary Day, a special weekend full of festivities, recreation and local celebrations. On June 25 & 26, each of the 14 national sites will host special activities for their communities such as film screenings, lectures, educational displays, recreational activities, tours, service projects, clean-ups and more. The complete list of events can be found here.

In addition to the events within the sites, folks are invited to participate in the Get Into Your Sanctuary photo contest. We look forward to seeing photos of your adventures within sanctuaries! Details on how to enter your photographs can be found here.

Don’t forget to use #ILoveMySanctuary on social media to help us share the excitement with others! Get Into Your Sanctuary Day is a system-wide event promoting awareness of safe and sustainable recreational activity within sanctuaries.
