Protecting and Restoring the Morro Bay Estuary.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Morro Bay National Estuary Program offices and Nature Center are currently closed to the public. However, we are still conducting monitoring, research, restoration, and education work to protect and restore the Morro Bay estuary. We look forward to seeing you again when it is safe to reopen. In the meantime, please subscribe to our blog for updates on our work or send us a message through our Contact page.
Our triennial report on the health of the Morro Bay estuary and watershed is available now. In addition to the print report, we’ve released an interactive digital version with loads of extra content!

People who join our kayak tours on Morro Bay are often awestruck by the beauty of the bay. Their appreciation deepens as we discuss the complexity and fragility of this amazing ecosystem and how the Morro Bay National Estuary Program is working to study, enhance, and improve the natural systems of the bay.”

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.
