There are 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves across the country, focused on studying and protecting their unique estuary ecosystems. South Carolina is home to the ACE Basin and her NERR-by sister reserve, North Inlet – Winyah Bay in Georgetown. After a brief overview of the NERR system we’ll hear from researchers about how they record and use water quality data and current projects from both reserves.
Grab your children and hike along with Reserve staff for a short but exciting salt marsh hike on our education boardwalk. We will explore the salt marsh through our sense of smell, sight, and taste!! Adults must register also. Registration required, limited to 6 participants. Masks must be worn when social distancing is not possible or in large group. Please meet at the Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center Parking Lot.
Bike 5 miles (roundtrip) on gravel roads through Hobcaw Barony’s pristine forests to the Reserve’s beautiful salt marsh boardwalk on North Inlet estuary. Wildlife, research and salt marsh ecology will be discussed during the trip. Bring your own bike (all terrain tires recommended), helmet, water, snack. FREE; weather permitting. Limited to 6 participants due to COVID. Please wear a mask inside buildings and while in the group.
