National Estuaries Week is September 17-24!
Thanks to our dedicated event hosts and enthusiastic volunteers, National Estuaries Week 2016 was the most successful event to date. More than 19,000 volunteers contributed over 90,000 hours of service to restoring and improving the nation's estuaries at more than 150 events across the country. Check out the National Estuaries Week report and executive summary to learn more about this year's accomplishments.
Many thanks to CITGO, our National Estuaries Week Gulf Coast sponsor.
Thanks to their support, Restore America's Estuaries was able to fund seven new National Estuaries Week events, helping to improve and restore ecosystems throughout the Gulf.
Since 1988, National Estuaries Week has celebrated the many ways we benefit, from healthy, thriving coastal ecosystems. All throughout the country, local organizations including Restore America’s Estuaries member groups, National Estuarine Research Reserves and National Estuary Programs organize special events, like beach clean-ups, hikes, canoe and kayak trips, workshops and more to recognize the special role these places play in our everyday lives. National Estuaries Week is a terrific opportunity to learn more about estuaries and the perfect excuse to spend time on your local bay!
