COASTAL COMMUNITIES CONNECT US TO THE WATER. AT THE EDGES OF ESTUARIES THROUGH OUR BEACHES AND WATERFRONT, PRESERVING AND CHERISHING OUR RESOURCES IS CRITICAL. OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH WATER, WHETHER IT IS TIME SPENT ON IT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, OR UNDERSTANDING THE DELICATE ECOSYSTEM AND ITS NECESSITY FOR SUSTAINING OUR LIVES, IS AN IMPORTANT MISSION FOR US AT TIDE HILL.
“A DROP OF WATER, IF IT COULD WRITE OUT ITS OWN HISTORY, WOULD EXPLAIN THE UNIVERSE TO US.” – LUCY LARCOM
As if to grasp the coastline, the ocean reaches out for the land, with estuaries as its fingers and hands. In this unique nexus — characterized by the dynamic mixing of salt and freshwater in tidal cycles — abundant life is created and nurtured.
Founded in 1995, Restore America’s Estuaries is a national alliance of 10 coastal conservation groups dedicated to restoring and preserving America’s estuaries and coasts. Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE) is a powerful voice for coastal habitat restoration in the nation’s capital.
