Join us Sunday, Sept. 24th for an Estuaries Day Event at WBNERR!

racingbeachcleanupphoto1Join us this Sunday, September 24th from 2 to 4 pm, rain or shine, to celebrate Estuaries Day at the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Reserve.

Our theme this year is Marine Debris (aka garbage in the ocean and how we can prevent it). There will be live music with Zoey Lewis, hands-on art activities, a show of upcycled art pieces, ocean plastic activities, marine debris film shorts, and the chance to win cool stainless steel and glass straws and insulated water bottles!

Bring along a picnic lunch, a beach chair or blanket, and your own reusable water bottle or cup. And, bring an old t-shirt if you’d like to see it reborn as a tote bag. 

This event is co-sponsored by Skip the Straw Campaign/FWS, NOAA Northeast Region Marine Debris Program, Ocean Protection Advocacy Kids, Friends of Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Waquoit Bay Reserve Foundation, and Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.

We hope to see you there! Contact Falmouth Water Stewards (info at for more information. 

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday! Check out and share our flyer!
