The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR) will celebrate National Estuaries Day on Friday, September 29, in Eastpoint, Florida.  The first 600 visitors will receive a free t-shirt. Activities include free, fun and educational stations for kids and adults including marine animal touch tanks, and estuary-themed games including Microplastic Match-Up, Reptile Round-Up and Pin the Tag on the Monarch.

The Sea Turtles of the Forgotten Coast exhibit, also on display in the Nature Center, shows videos of nesting sea turtles and hatchlings and demonstrates what responsible beach residents can do to help sea turtles.
