The California Signage Plan is an organized and systematic way to develop and install graphic signs along the California coastline and inland that interpret the natural and cultural resources of a particular location and its connection to the sanctuaries located within California. To date, a strategic approach to evaluating interpretive signs produced by the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries has not been developed; therefore, NOAA does not know if the messages trying to be conveyed to their audiences are effective. NOAA is proposing to conduct an online and onsite survey of approximately 400 visitors to the locations where signs are currently E:\FR\FM\04AUN1.SGM 04AUN1
