Our Live Celebration is over, but the Summer Celebration 2020 campaign continues!

Our live celebration was a resounding success. With your incredible support, we not only reached our goal, we exceeded it. If you missed the live broadcast, you can still watch it here.

Also, remember to check out our silent auction, open through August 13.

And you can donate to support our mission and our critical life-saving work anytime.

Thanks to everyone for making Summer Celebration a success, and for all your enthusiasm and support this year and always.

We’re celebrating another year of important research, conservation and education about our coasts and wetlands. Help us raise $75,000 in two weeks!

There’s no cost to join the celebration. Enjoy the live event, bid on auction items, and donate to support The Wetlands Institute’s work. Since 1969, The Wetlands Institute has protected, preserved and stewarded vast tracts of wetlands, conducted life-saving research and conservation to ensure these marshes are here for years to come, and educated both young and old on the value of these ecosystems for our well-being.
