NEC Fiscally-Sponsored Programs


Humboldt Baykeeper:

Humboldt Baykeeper, formerly a program of the Ecological Rights Foundation, was launched in October 2004 to safeguard our coastal resources for the health, enjoyment, and economic strength of the Humboldt Bay community through education, scientific research, and enforcement of laws to fight pollution. We are proud to have Humboldt Baykeeper under our umbrella.
