While the Society is open to all, we are particularly soliciting membership by scientists and students working in estuarine and coastal environments in California and Baja California, Mexico.

Membership levels

Regular. Persons whose professional activities are consistent with the purpose of the organization.

Honorary. Persons whose outstanding contributions in estuarine and coastal research have been recognized by Executive Committee and CAERSs members. Honorary members are elected for life and do not pay dues.

Membership dues

Dues of $20 (regular professional) or $10 (regular student) per calendar year are payable by the Payment Page of this website in January of each year, or you may join during the CAERS meeting registration or through CERF membership website.

Dues and any donations or earnings will be used to support activities of the Society. We keep mailing and other expenses low and to use available funds for worthwhile activities such as supporting graduate student travel to the national meeting.
