Description

An estuary is the habitat that forms where the rivers and streams meet the sea. Located along the Gulf Coast of Florida, the mangrove estuary at Rookery Bay Reserve harbors much biodiversity and is home to 150 bird species and other endangered wildlife. Volunteers, staff and visiting scientists monitor and maintain this delicate ecosystem. In an effort to promote environmental care and awareness, the reserve provides 45-minute educational programs on various topics such as skulls and bones, native plants, and slithering snakes. There are also a number of programs specifically geared towards kids and they're usually free. Check their website for a schedule of times and events and for more information on how to get involved.
