National Estuaries Week 2021

Estuario is celebrating this year’s National Estuaries Week with a series of educational and public involvement events that range from the demonstration of environmental restoration and management projects to a trail through the Condado Lagoon Natural Estuarine Reserve. Members of the public are invited to visit the coasts, lagoons, rivers and urban forests throughout the watershed and enjoy the benefits of these natural spaces.

The National Estuaries Week of 2021 begins with Estuario’s participation in this year’s International Coast Cleanup, led nationally by the Scuba Dogs Society.

Estuario Resident Artist: Watch the Short Film

We share the short documentary, filmed and edited by Estuario Resident Artist Michelle Malley; depicting her glass works workshops with the community of Machuchal at Calle Loíza in San Juan. The short film documents the end of her tenure.

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.
