A strikingly beautiful and deeply historic estuary and former harbor, Ellisville Marsh is a critical environment that needs our support. Together, we can work to revive and preserve this important habitat for generations to come.

When you donate to the Friends, you automatically become a member, for one full year. Your annual membership donation helps fund all of the Friends’ annual and routine operating expenses. Over 90% of our budget is allocated to restoration-related activities —inlet maintenance, environmental monitoring—and only a small fraction to administrative overhead.
