Capacities Identification Workshops
The latest series of Capacities Identification Workshops for the development of Estuario’s Hazard Mitigation Plan is underway. This week we performed the first three workshops for the communities of San Juan, Toa Baja and Cataño.
The workshops are designed to teach the public the process of identifying abilities, resources, attributes, and strengths that make their communities stronger against disastrous events. They continue starting Monday, September 13 2021. Interested people can register at https://estuario.org/capacidades/.
Informative Table at Mercado Agroartesanal de Barrio Obrero
This Sunday, September 12 2021, Estuario will be part of the Barrio Obrero community market Mercado Agroartesanal with its informative table. The table will feature information on how to set up your emergency backpack and have copies of Estuario’s Community Preparation Guide Against Hurricanes. The community market takes place every second Sunday of the month, from 10AM to 4PM.
Preparing for the Hurricane Season
We’re in the midst of the Atlantic hurricane season. As part of hazard mitigation efforts, Estuario is enacting a season-wide informative campaign, centered in the promotion of Estuario’s Virtual Resilent Community Hub. The hub continues to be updated with essential information to the public regarding preparation and hazard mitigation management.
The San Juan Bay Estuary Watershed’s water quality management and restoration actions are possible thanks to our public. Donations to the San Juan Bay Estuary Program are deductible in Federal and Local tax returns.
