The National Marine Sanctuary concept is best explained in a community presentation setting, where comments can be solicited and questions can be answered.

The SHBNMS team is eager to make presentations to community organizations to further advance the public understanding of the concept.

With regard to public knowledge, the Sandy Hook Bay NMS concept was first raised in the afterword of the second edition of Chronology of Boating, published in late November 2015.

The afterword was republished as a commentary in the December 22, 2015 issue of the Two River Times
