Protecting and Restoring the Morro Bay Estuary.
Join the largest beach cleanup in the world by helping to keep Morro Bay’s sandspit clean for people and wildlife. We’ll take a free boat ride over to the sandspit, so signups are required.
Explore our estuary through science! Read our triennial report on the health of the bay.
Morro Bay National Estuary Program is a perfect example of how environmental agencies can cooperate and complement the work of local government. The City of Morro Bay and the Estuary Program partnered on a number of issues. The Estuary Program is an active participant in our community; we are proud and appreciative of their work.
Janice Peters, Mayor of Morro Bay 2004–2010
The Morro Bay National Estuary Program works to protect and restore Morro Bay and its watershed by conducting monitoring and research to track the health of the estuary, repairing natural habitats to protect water quality and wildlife, and educating residents and visitors on how to be good stewards of the bay.
