How to get involved?

There Are So Many Ways

There are so many ways to help your Reserve. Whether it is giving your time, making a donation, or joining your Reserve’s friends group, your help will make a difference. On a national level, you can support our System of Reserves by participating in one of our annual social media campaigns. 

Season of Gratitude

Every year, Reserves come together to show our gratitude for the special places we protect and Congressional support for the work we do.

National Estuaries Week

Every year, dozens of organizations host events to celebrate National Estuaries Week in September. This year, please join us in safely celebrating the places we love—and the people who work so hard to protect them.


Every February, Reserve friends and fans team up to show Congress (and the world) how truly, madly, deeply love they love estuaries and their local Reserves! This three-day social media campaign is an easy way to show your support.

Show Your NERRd Pride

Want to share your heart on your sleeve? (Or on a sticker, a mask, a reusable water bottle, a laptop case… you name it!) NERRA now has custom swag, and all proceeds support our programs.
