National Estuaries Day
September 27 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
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.
