What is an estuary and why should you care? Join our Senior Guide youth volunteers throughout the summer to find out. Each week will offer a new activity or craft focusing on a different estuary plant or animal. Participate each week to see the estuary come to life and earn a stamp. Get an Estuary Badge by earning 8 stamps!
