Visit The Reserve's Nature Center

The Apalachicola NERR Nature Center has reopened to the public. We have resumed our usual Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9AM to 4PM operation.

The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve's home is located at 108 Island Drive (State Road 300) at Cat Point in Eastpoint, Florida. Visitors enter along a winding nature path and learn about local habitat types. Exhibits and aquaria inside give them a sense of where they are in Florida and the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint watershed. A coastal walk from the Nature Center to the shoreline gives further opportunities to learn about and enjoy the natural setting. Below are printable tri-fold brochures with additional recreation opportunities within the Reserve.
