National Estuaries Day

September 27 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

| Free

National Estuaries Week (NEW) is a nationwide celebration of bays and estuaries and the many benefits they provide to local communities. Each year, hundreds of organizations throughout the country host local events in celebration of National Estuaries Week, from beach cleanups and marsh restoration events, to kayaking tours.

The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR) will celebrate National Estuaries Day on Friday, September 27, in Eastpoint, Florida. The first 600 visitors will receive a free t-shirt commemorating this year as the Reserve’s 40th anniversary. Activities include free, fun and educational stations for kids and adults including marine animal touch tanks, and estuary-themed games, including a new sea turtle game!

Attendees can also tour ANERR’s 5,400 square-foot Nature Center, including an 80-foot long mural depicting the area ecosystems, historical exhibits, and a hands-on Bay Discovery Room. The Microplastics exhibit, also on display in the Nature Center now through Estuaries Day, takes a close look at the increasing use of plastics in the world and how they are impacting life throughout the food chain.
