Estuario Weekly Update
Every week we share collaboration, volunteering and work opportunities through programmed actions and initiatives in benefit of the communities and ecosystems of the San Juan Bay Estuary Watershed. These activities, recommendations and information are for everyone’s benefit.
This past week was Valentine’s Day! As part of this celebration, we joined the campaign #IHeartEstuaries, with the Association of National Estuarine Programs (ANEP), the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association (NERRA) and Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE). The campaign highlighted the importance of our estuaries as well as their ecological, social, and economic value. See what our sister estuarine programs shared!
