Join us for our FREE annual celebration of the 28 national estuarine research reserves. Called National Estuaries Day, the celebration recognizes the importance of estuaries, the habitat where rivers meet the sea.
Rookery Bay Reserve's event includes staff-narrated boat tours, introductory 30-minute kayaking trips, paddleboarding on Henderson Creek, marine critter touch tank, live animal presentations and educational booths. Tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Admission is free.
Additionally, there will be crafts and activities for children, behind-the-scenes tours of the science labs, films, music, food and more. Activities are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
