Join the Chorus #2: The Clause Comes Out
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

You can also join the chorus of thousands of other citizens that believe a national system of estuarine research reserves is worth saving:
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you here this year and for many years to come.
