CCE’s Marine Program has been giving Back to the Bays since 1985, and we are committed to offering communities, individuals, and businesses opportunities to help us expand our efforts! Our goal is to increase stakeholder engagement in our: Water Quality Protection Initiatives, Habitat Improvement Projects, Shellfish and Fin Fish Research and Restoration, and Youth and Community Education Experiences.

Whether you are a concerned citizen, an aspiring citizen scientist or a business owner looking for an opportunity to support our local maritime heritage, we will be able to effectively link you to an appropriate project, sponsorship opportunity, or volunteer effort!  By providing time, energy, and monetary support, local communities and individuals alike can play a significant part in the success and expansion of the many important initiatives of CCE’s Marine Program. One of the best ways that you can support these initiatives is by becoming an official Back to the Bays member! 

2015 was  the 30th Anniversary of CCE's Marine Program. In celebration, we launched our 30 Ways to Give Back to the Bays Campaign. For 2019, we have planned more unique opportunities for you to LEARN, DO, ENJOY and GIVE BACK to the Bays!
