Affiliate Membership

Affiliate Membership

As the leader of a national alliance of coastal conservation organizations, Restore America’s Estuaries provides a united voice across the coastal and estuarine community. Organizations like yours provide the vital, on-the-ground capacity our community needs to advance the science and practice of habitat protection and restoration.

The Affiliate Member Program increases both the national impact and footprint in which RAE can directly support community engagement in this field. Designed to complement the work of RAE’s formal alliance organizations, the Affiliate Membership Program was created in recognition of the importance of a broad and diverse partnership base. Together, we will elevate the restoration, conservation, and resiliency work that so many coastal organizations are doing around the country every day.

This program offers organizations increased visibility opportunities to create meaningful connections, and participation in the national dialogue to protect and restore our nation’s estuaries.
