Our work at the Estuary Program is divided into four priority areas. Each are represented by an icon that you will encounter throughout the website to indicate a connection to these priority areas. These four areas encompass the many kinds of work that we do in the watershed, and also correspond to our four subcommittees: Water and Sediment Quality (WSQ), Natural Resources Uses (NRU), Public Participation and Education (PPE), and Monitoring and Research (M&R). Follow the links below to explore the background, purpose, and priority issues of each area.
