Restore America's Estuaries
AmeriCorps National Planning Grant FY 2011
RAE will develop a National Estuary Restoration Corps to mentor and train members to lead volunteers to restore coastal habitat. Using RAE's established connections, both rural and urban, a NERC will serve a variety of populations including those traditionally underserved. Getting the public outside to work on hands-on restoration projects promotes science, connects people to their natural environment, and cultivates environmentally-literate, active citizens; while restoring America's Estuaries.
