National Estuaries Week will be observed this year from September 17 to 24, 2016. Reserves around the country will be hosting numerous fun and educational events throughout the week to build awareness of the important benefits provided by estuaries. SCAPE will be celebrating the many benefits of healthy, thriving ecosystems this weekend along with Restore America’s Estuaries and the National Estuarine Research Reserves.
Representatives and designers from the Living Breakwaters team will be attending the Staten Island Children Museum’s Emergency Preparedness Festival, as well as Hudson River Park’s Submerge NYC Marine Science Festival. Make sure to get involved, get outside and learn more about how you can contribute to these events.
