ESTUARIUM

SUPPORT LOCAL

People, plants, and animals all depend on our estuaries. Your generous gift helps us preserve the waterways that are a way of life in Eastern North Carolina. We are a small operation, so every little bit goes a long way.

Thank you for your help!

IN THE NEWS

The Estuarium Welcomes Back Visitors

We are allowing full capacity in the building and not requiring masks for visitors (though staff will be wearing masks in busy periods).

As of 8/16/21, however, Covid infections are rising sharply due to the careless. We may be forced to return to limited capacity or requiring masks for visitors in coming weeks if infections continue to spike.

ARTIST OF THE MONTH
