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.

Next week we will be celebrating Coral Reef Week! Celebrate with Estuario and our collaborators at the DENR, who have scheduled a calendar of activities as part of this commemoration. Download the calendar here (PDF).

Cine del Estuario

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the screening for Cine del Estuario: In the Heights; scheduled Saturday, June 4, 2022, has been cancelled.  We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at our next feature.  We’ll be announcing details soon.

Certification for Citizen Scientists

As part of the celebrations for Coral Reefs Week, don’t miss the Certification for Citizen Scientists Workshop—Coral Reefs: Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems; Thursday, June 9, 2022, from 5-7PM at Estuario’s Visitor Center (Old San Juan) and virtually, via Zoom. This joint workshop satisfies two requirements (introductory and elective) for the Coastal Resilience Thematic Module; it’s a great option to get certified faster.
