NCNERR begins estuaries outreach and education campaign

DCM’s Coastal Reserve-National Estuarine Research Reserve Program has been awarded a $27,000 grant from the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Program to conduct an estuarine shoreline outreach and education campaign within the APNEP region. The campaign will promote awareness and stewardship of estuarine habitats through hands-on workshops.

As part of the campaign, DCM is conducting a Did You Know (DYK) campaign about N.C. estuaries, shoreline stabilization, and sea-level rise, as part of the Reserve’s 2011 Estuary Education and Awareness Campaign, funded by the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Program (APNEP).

Follow us onTwitter(#NCS2RY) andFacebookthrough September to learn more about North Carolina estuaries, find out about public field trips and workshops, and more.

Estuaries are formed where rivers meet the sea. At over 3,000 square miles, North Carolina boasts one of the nation’s largest and most significant estuarine systems. Among other services, estuaries support healthy fisheries, improve water quality, provide recreational opportunities, and offer coastal storm protection.
