Morro Bay was designated a state estuary in 1994 and an “estuary of national significance” in 1995 as a result of a tireless community-based effort to protect this precious resource. The Morro Bay National Estuary Program is one of 28 National Estuary Programs around the country working to safeguard and improve the health of some of our nation’s most important coastal waters. The Morro Bay National Estuary Program is locally managed, but is recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency, who provides some financial and technical support to each National Estuary Program. The Morro Bay National Estuary Program works on behalf of our local community to make Morro Bay a better place for all of us.
