Celebrate Estuaries Week!
Published: Monday, September 23, 2013

Well, summer is almost over and it's that time of year when we spread the word about the importance of estuaries to all Americans. In fact, it is the 25th Anniversary of National Estuaries Day on September 28th and for the first time we have decided to add a few more days and make it Estuaries Week September 23-29! 

Joining us in the celebration is EPA, Department of Interior, USDA, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Restore America's Estuaries, National Estuarine Research Reserve Association, and many others. Check out the event map we are jointly promoting with our partners: National Estuaries Week Event map.

This year, we are asking everyone to spread the word using their social media sites to post pictures of favorite estuaries and links to our National Estuaries Day website for more information. Add to the online conversation by using the hashtag #EstuariesWeek.

NOAA's National Ocean Service has joined in the celebration of estuaries, check out their site for information on how you can Do Your Part to Help Protect Estuaries

Thanks for your joining in on this annual celebration and helping spreading the word on the important role estuaries play in our nation!
