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.
This coming Wednesday, June 1, the 2022 hurricane season begins. Estuario encourages you to download the Community Hurricane Preparedness Guide and follow its recommendations. The strength and resilience of your community starts at home.
Also, visit Estuario’s Virtual Community Center, where you’ll find vital information, such as relevant emergency numbers, and instructions for preparing emergency backpacks. Don’t be alarmed! Prepare.
