Find your reserve

The National Estuarine Research Reserve System encompasses more than 1.3 million acres of habitats. Mangrove forests, salt marshes, wetlands, oyster reefs, glaciers, islands, beaches, fields and forests—together these lands reflect the tremendous diversity and beauty of our nation’s coasts and estuaries. They also represent our collective commitment to protect these invaluable places for future generations. We encourage you to find your local reserve, enjoy the beauty of the environments it protects, and learn how it supports your region.
