It’s that time of year again, when we ALL get to show how truly, madly, deeply we love estuaries and programs like the NERRS. From 2/12 to 2/14: please join NERRA and its partners in our annual #iheartestuaries love fest.
Help us show Congress how much estuaries and our programs are valued by everyone, regardless of which coastal state you live in or what side of the aisle you favor. We’ve put together this guidance to share with friends, partners, and anyone else you think would profess their unabashed, sappy, NERRDy estuary love, be they folks from a reserve friends group, partners, family members, or personal friends.
The timing for this campaign is critical—it comes just as our representatives are gearing up for Hill visits. Your display of public affection will help remind elected officials how important estuaries are to your partners and the communities you support. No tweet will be too sweet, no “estuary lovin” status too much of an overshare; just include the hashtags: #iheartestuaries and tag your elected official and/or one we’ve highlighted in the attached guidance.
