COVID-19 UPDATE: To help protect the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers, this attraction will be closed to the public effective March 18-April 17.

This public research and education facility encompasses over 9,000 acres of protected estuarine habitats bordering Weeks Bay and Fish and Magnolia Rivers. The Reserve has an interpretive center with indoor displays and live animals as well as extensive forested boardwalk nature trails, a native pitcher plant bog and boat ramp. Scheduled guided group tours are available. The Reserve is part of a national network of coastal reserves established as living laboratories for long-term scientific research and estuarine education into places "where rivers meet the sea.”
