K-12 Education

Education, training, and outreach activities include a broad spectrum of activities designed to enhance public awareness of the importance of estuarine systems and provide opportunities for public education and interpretation. A critical aspect of these efforts is the linkage of education to science and stewardship. The overall goal is to translate scientific information into language that can be understood and applied by the public. The NERR coordinates with federal and state agencies, national education, scientific and environmental organizations, and also is an active member of the local and regional education community.
