SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The California Boating and Waterways Commission (Commission) recognizes Berkeley Marina’s Waterfront Manager, John Mann, as the second inductee into their “Hall of Fame”. This honor is bestowed upon unique individuals who in their own right have become ‘Champions’ of and for the boating community.

John Mann took over the helm of Berkeley Marina in May 2008. He came to the marina with a unique set of past work experiences both in the public and private sectors – Vice President of Operations at International Micro Computer Systems, Deputy Director and Chief Operating Officer at the San Francisco Zoo, and worked at University of California San Francisco and the Nut Tree family park. 

Mann’s strong interest in environmental stewardship, education, boating and business are evident in the strides he has made at the marina and shoreline park. One of particular note is steering the final phases of construction restoration at Berkeley Marina. The commissioners toured this facility earlier this year and came away significantly impressed. Not only were they impressed with the stellar appearance of the entire marina, but also in the ways that this facility ties in recreational aspects for the community.

Through the City of Berkeley’s Marine Experience Programs, the marina has been able to offer both adults and children the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, on land and on the water. Some of the opportunities include:

On-the-Water Experience Classes 
Classes on canoeing, boating, waterskiing and wakeboarding are offered to 9-16 year olds.

Clean and Green Marina
The marina offers a year round shoreline clean up educational program that educates the community about the impact of plastic on the environment. This facility also participates in International Coastal Cleanup Day, is acknowledge as a Clean Marina and is an oil spill responder site.

Shorebird Park Nature Center
The Shorebird Park Nature Center is the first municipal strawbale building in the United States. Visitors can learn how homes and the environment can benefit from “green materials”, unique design and energy saving alternatives, and on the San Francisco Bay and its ecology, estuary and watershed. Other exhibits include an aquarium, fresh water tank, birds and other marine mammals.

Adventure Playground
A unique outdoor facility, considered as a top 10 playground by the National Geographic, where children are encouraged to play and be creative. Children can climb kid designed and built forts, boats and towers. Or ride a zip line, hammer, saw or paint.

The Commission considers Berkeley Marina as a showplace for what can be accomplished through partnerships with local communities.
