National Estuaries Week
September 14 - September 21
Check back from more North Carolina Coastal Federation National Estuaries Week events coming soon!
National Estuaries Week is a nationwide celebration of our bays and estuaries and the many benefits they provide to local communities. Each year, hundreds of organizations throughout the country host local events in celebration of National Estuaries Week, from beach cleanups and marsh restoration events, to kayaking tours. We create awareness around our estuaries through social media and engaged citizens.
The goals of National Estuaries Week include:
- To create broad public awareness and support for our nation’s estuaries and coasts
- To encourage active engagement and participation with local estuaries through volunteer and educational events
- To communicate the value and importance of our estuaries and coasts to key decision makers at the local and federal levels
