Our office is open

Our doors at the Denny Conservation and Education Center are open! Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Friday from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM.

Some staff continue to work from home one or more days a week, so we recommend you call or email before stopping by to see someone.

Health and safety measures


Coastal Rivers staff are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Visitors to any of our facilities are required to wear a mask when coming inside. Those who are fully vaccinated are NOT required to wear a mask once they have signed a waiver with us confirming their vaccination status.


We are currently offering both in-person and online programs. Our in-person programs are all outdoors and are limited in size. Participants who are eligible must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.


Coastal Rivers requires that volunteers participating in group activities be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Please fill out our Volunteer Vaccination Form to let us know your vaccination status.

If you are not vaccinated for any reason, please let us know and we would be glad to help you find a volunteer opportunity that is not indoors and does not put you in close proximity to others.
