In 2019, a record crowd of more than 800 guests recently celebrated National Estuaries Day (NED). NED is part of a nationwide celebration of National Estuaries Week where organizations and volunteers from across the country gathered at their local bays, riverfronts and estuaries to learn about and celebrate the importance of estuaries and how they benefit our coastal way of life.

The free event at Rookery Bay included boat rides, kayaks, hands-on science demos, kids activities and more.
