Estuario Weekly Update
Through our weekly update, we share opportunities for collaboration, volunteering, and work; through initiatives and actions programmed for the benefit of the ecosystems and communities of the San Juan Bay estuary. These activities, tips and information are for everyone’s benefit.
Visit from the Environmental Protection Agency
This week the San Juan Bay Estuary Program received a visit from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with the purpose of completing Estuario’s Program Evaluation. This evaluation is carried out every five years to ensure compliance with the actions of the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan of the San Juan Bay Estuary (CCMP). The team made a tour of different community-based projects through the watershed and experienced first-hand—together with leaders and community entities—the results of our efforts.
