New, Updated Website on the Way

As CMRC's supporters know, we are working hard to grow the CMRC's programs and provide the NY-NJ region with educational opportunities and policy recommendations to help protect and preserve the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary.

We have been so lucky to rely on our dedicated volunteer webmaster since the very beginning of the beginning! Jon Neilson has put in the most time, effort, and talent of any of our volunteers. Thank you, Jon!

To save Jon time, we'll be updating the CMRC website to make it more user friendly, and easier to update on a daily and monthly basis. Keep on the look out for our new programming info. You'll see information on our:

Horseshoe crab education programs

Seining programs

Beach Clean-ups

The Virtual Estuary Project

The CMRC's Business Stewards of the Estuary Program

Harbor Estuary Policy initiatives

Thanks for your support!
