Enjoy the benefits of becoming a member of NY/NJ BAYKEEPER

It’s hard to believe that summer is here again! As more people get out on the water for the season, Baykeeper is working hard to ensure our waterways are clean, safe and accessible for everyone. We are busy working to stop polluters, champion public access, influence land use decisions, educate the public and preserve and restore habitat.

But we can’t do it alone – we need your help! Please join us in our mission to protect, preserve and restore our harbor by becoming a member today.

Members are the vital link between our work and our communities. Membership is different from a general donation; our members enjoy added benefits including Baykeeper merchandise, discounts to Baykeeper events and invitations to "Members Only" meetings and calls. Baykeeper members also receive action alerts about relevant advocacy initiatives to keep you informed about the state of our estuary and what you can do to get involved.

This year, your support will enable us to:

  • Introduce 60,000 new oysters into the waterway through our Oyster Restoration & Research project at Naval Weapons Station Earle and our NYC Oyster Gardening Program
  • Fight for the implementation of upgraded standards for Combined Sewers throughout the state
  • Complete three invasive species removals, erosion control, trail enhancement or similar stewardship projects on acquired properties and public parks
  • Continue our Pumpout Boat service for the Raritan Bay, Sandy Hook Bay, Staten Island, Gravesend Bay, Sheepshead Bay and Jamaica Bay And so much more!

At this pivotal point in our history, we are serving more communities than ever. It is now more important than ever that you join us as a member to protect, preserve, and restore the Hudson-Raritan Harbor Estuary. Please visit www.nynjbaykeeper.org/membership  to become a member today.
