Chapters

Our network grows stronger with every chapter we add.

Our irreplaceable national network of chapter volunteers serves as the first response to local threats in coastal communities across the US. They are the boots on the ground who collaborate on both the local and national level with regional staff and issue experts to carry out our mission through campaign, program and educational initiatives in their local communities.

Our network grows stronger with every chapter we add.

Get involved.

There are many ways to get involved. The best way to get involved is to find a chapter near you, using our chapter map/locator. You can also visit any chapter website to get contact info for executive staff and in most cases a calendar of upcoming events. Once you’ve found your local chapter, we encourage you engage with them either at an event or via email. Our chapters are always looking for volunteers from all walks of life — graphics designers, event coordinators, accountants, environmental experts, and more.
