The COVID-19 Virus: Letting the waves pass through

Much like a treacherous storm can have a devastating impact on our shorelines, we know that the COVID-19 virus has taken a toll on our community. We’re with you – as we know our community is strong.

We want to do our part to keep our staff and community safe.

Our office is temporarily closed while staff works remotely during this time. We’ve postponed our beach cleanups and community events as we traditionally organized them, and we are recalibrating our education programs and garden workshops.

Our Results

Over nearly two decades, Coastkeeper has become an effective and proactive organization that advocates for everyone’s inalienable right to clean water.
