Jane Lubchenco at Leadership Awards Dinner
Every year in June, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation recognizes our nation’s Ocean Heroes at its annual Leadership Awards Dinner. At the dinner, the NMSF presents its Leadership Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the NMSF Volunteer of the Year Award. This year's event will be held June 7 from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

Guests of this black-tie optional, annual dinner include Members and staff of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives; Administration officials; ocean luminaries, scientists, and academics in marine conservation; and representatives from conservation organizations and ocean-related industries.

The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is honored to have Jim Toomey, creator of the nationally syndicated comic strip "Sherman's Lagoon," as Master of Ceremonies as we pay tribute to:
