It is the only area organization focused on educating the public about coastal and watershed issues, and conducting research on coastal ecosystems and endangered species.

The Center cooperates on a broader level in coastal, environmental, and educational programming throughout New England, nationally and internationally.

Our school-based activities further expand our reach to urban audiences. A scholarship program also provides space for ten urban New Bedford students in our Summer Program.  Learn more about Our History
