WASHINGTON, D.C. — On behalf of the National Ocean Council, which includes 27 federal agencies and offices, the Department of the Interior will host and organize the June 21-23 National Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning Workshop at its Washington, D.C. headquarters.

Leading off a top panel of federal officials tomorrow, David J. Hayes, Deputy Secretary of the Interior, will discuss the vision and stewardship responsibilities of President Obama's National Policy for the Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts and the Great Lakes.

The first day of the Workshop will be a dedicated public and stakeholder session, at which pre-registered citizens will join the National Oceans Council (NOC) and Federal, state, tribal, and regional representatives to develop an understanding of the CMSP process, begin to build a community of future CMSP practitioners, and consider next steps for regional implementation. The session is open to media and will be live-streamed on the Interior website at The agenda and more information can be found at
