Story

In 2020, health and well-being have been at the forefront of our minds. Now more than ever, we are striving to take better care of ourselves and each other. One great way to do this: Get Out!

The human health benefits of time spent outdoors are widely known. Those that get their recommended dose experience lowered blood pressure and stress hormone levels, enhanced immune systems, and less anxiety. There’s no doubt about it: getting outside is good for us.

But in order for our community to reap the benefits of nature, we must ensure that we are taking care of our environment. Threats like pollution and habitat loss destroy natural places and if we don’t do our part to protect them, they will no longer be there for us to enjoy.

That’s why the Center is encouraging you to join our new initiative, Get Out for the Bays! Throughout the month of September, you can show your support for the Inland Bays and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Together, we can ensure healthy communities and healthy Bays for years to come!


How to Participate in 5 Easy Steps:

Step One: Pick an outdoor activity you enjoy and set a goal related to that activity. For example, if you enjoy kayaking, commit to paddling a certain number of miles throughout the month of September.

Step Two: Set a fundraising goal. It can be whatever amount you’re comfortable with!

Step Three: Create and customize your very own virtual fundraising page to let people know about your chosen activity and why the Bays are important to you. Click here for further instructions!

Step Four: Share your page with your friends and family and ask them to support you by donating. All the money that you raise will benefit the Center’s efforts to protect and restore the Inland Bays! Click here for sharing tips!

Step Five: Reach your goals and CELEBRATE! You’ve raised important funds for the good of your community and had fun while doing it!
