Who We Are
ANEP works with the 28 individual programs in the National Estuary Program (NEP), which was established in 1987 by Congress to restore and protect estuaries of significant importance. The NEP brings together citizens, scientists, businesses and government to solve environmental problems and promote healthy, vibrant communities. The program stakeholders work together to develop science-based action plans that enhance the estuary as a vital environmental and economic resource benefiting local communities and the entire nation.
