Ellisville Marsh is an important wildlife estuary supporting protected species, it's historic, it's a critical environment that needs our help. Together, we can work to revive and preserve this important habitat for generations to come.

Your annual membership donation funds all of the Friends’ annual and routine operating expenses: from inlet maintenance, to environmental monitoring, and administration. We use your money prudently – the vast majority (>90%) of funds go directly to restoration-related activities with only a small fraction to administrative overhead.

Your Endowment Fund donation ensures the long-term, generational conservation of the Ellisville Marsh. There's been considerable support in our goal of raising $100,000, but we still have a long way to go to insure that Ellisville Marsh will continue to receive the stewardship it requires to fully regain its former healthy state.

All contributions and membership fees to the Friends are fully tax deductible.
