Impactful Research and Conservation

Our Research and Conservation programs work every day to understand, protect, and preserve the rich diversity of plants and animals that make the salt marsh their home.   Our marshes are in constant flux with both natural and human-induced changes combining to stress these natural systems.  A gift directed to Research and Conservation will support our programs:

✓   restore Diamondback Terrapin populations;

✓   rescue Horseshoe Crabs along the Delaware Bayshore;

✓   monitor and protect coastal and wetland birds; and

✓   test and implement habitat enhancement projects for wetlands and beaches.

Interactive Environmental Education

Our Environmental Education programs engage children and adults in all aspects of exploring and enjoying coastal and wetland habitats. Formal environmental education programs bring school groups to the Institute to apply science skills to the wonders of the marsh and the surrounding bays. A visit to the Institute offers adults and families the opportunity to learn about and participate in conservation projects, learn about our fascinating natural areas, and go on guided walks or engage in self-discovery.   Your gift directed to Environmental Education will support:

✓   Environmental Education Field Trips

✓   Traveling Environmental Education Programs

✓   Science Education at Seas Programs

✓   Summer Nature Programs
