Needs and Uses: The Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) is requesting revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. This information collection is revised to include the collection instruments approved under OMB Control Number 0648–0777, after which that control number will be discontinued. The title of this collection is being changed to encompass both collections. The evaluation of visitor demographics, experiences, and opinions about visitor centers and exhibits is needed to support the conservation, education, and management goals of ONMS to strengthen and improve the stewardship, sustainable use, and protection of natural, cultural, and historical resources. Under the jurisdiction of ONMS and to satisfy legal mandates, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is authorized to conduct evaluations, such as this information collection, under the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (section 314(c)) to ensure education programs have measurable objectives and milestones as well as clear, documented metrics for evaluating its programs. For example, the Mokupa¯papa Discovery Center (Center) is an outreach arm of Papaha¯naumokua¯kea Marine National Monument that reaches more than 75,000 people each year in Hilo, Hawai‘i. The Center was created almost two decades ago to help raise support for the creation of a national marine sanctuary in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Since that time, the area has been proclaimed a marine national monument and the main messages we are trying to share with the public have changed to better reflect the new monument status, UNESCO World Heritage status, and the joint management by the three co-trustees of the monument. ONMS recently updated its Strategic Plan and has identified a lack of information on the effectiveness of its education, outreach, and communications initiatives as they relate to sanctuary/monument visitor centers, exhibits (permanent or traveling/temporary), kiosks, and educational programming conducted by its visitor centers and partner facilities. We therefore are seeking to determine if people visiting ONMS’ visitor centers and exhibits are receiving our new messages by conducting an optional exit survey. ONMS is requesting to conduct a survey to evaluate patron acuity to VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:55 Sep 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 determine successful concept attainment. Conducting thorough evaluations will aid in vital decisions regarding exhibit renovation, new exhibits, interpretation programs, and educational content. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One time every three years. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: National Marine Sanctuary Act.
