Find Your Reserve
Somewhere in the 1.3+ million acres of mangroves, marshes, beaches, fields, and forests protected by the National Estuarine Research Reserve System there is a place for you. Visit your Reserve, enjoy the natural beauty it protects, and learn how it supports you, your community, and our coasts.
Reserves and their regional friends groups rely on NERRA to help enhance successful programs, strengthen the network, and enable reserves to better address growing challenges to our nation’s estuaries, coasts, and communities. NERRA communicates the funding needs and priorities of the reserves to Congress and federal agencies and educates the general public about the importance of estuaries and coasts.
