Directions to for the Community Church of the Monterey Peninsula:
Take Highway One to Carmel Valley Road. At the intersection, turn onto Carmel Valley Road (it will either be a right or left hand turn at the light depending on whether you are coming from the south or north). Drive approximately 1 mile east past the middle school and on your right is the church. Make a right turn and follow signs to the church (off to your right). To reach Woodhull Hall go straight to the back of the church and take a right. There is plenty of parking. Walk through the gate at the back of the building and the hall is the first building on your left. Look for the signs.

About SAC
The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council was established by Federal law to assure continued public participation in the management of the Sanctuary. Since its establishment in March 1994, the Council has played a vital role in the decisions affecting the Sanctuary along the central California Coast. The Council's nineteen voting members represent a variety of local user groups, as well as the general public, plus seven local, state and federal governmental jurisdictions. In addition, the respective managers for the four California National Marine Sanctuaries (Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary) and the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve sit as non-voting members. Members are appointed competitively by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and serve three-year terms. The Council meets bi-monthly in open sessions located throughout the 360-mile boundary of the Sanctuary.

The Council maintains a firm commitment to the goals and objectives of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Program. The Council appreciates the efforts of volunteers, non-profit organizations, businesses, and citizens, without whose support the mission of the Sanctuary would be difficult to realize.
