Your Support Makes a Difference – At the West Haven Center for Coastal Ecology, we believe in nurturing a deep connection between children and their environment. As an independent, educational non-profit organization, we’re dedicated to fostering a love for science and ecology in the heart of West Haven and surrounding communities.

Through our hands-on Eco Camp, we provide invaluable experiences in crabbing, fishing, seining, and exploring the diverse ecosystems of the Long Island Estuarine System.

Your donations are greatly appreciated. They not only enable us to purchase essential supplies for our programs but also help us sponsor children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in these life-changing experiences. By donating, you’re investing in our future guardians of the environment—empowering them to learn, protect, and make a difference in their community.
