Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve

Administered under the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, Coastal Programs, the Weeks Bay Reserve provides a living laboratory for education and research groups to learn about estuaries - the coastal areas where rivers join the sea. In partnership with the federal government, the agency's mission is the conservation of coastal resources in Alabama. It provides leadership to promote informed management of estuarine and coastal habitats through scientific understanding and encourages good stewardship practices through partnerships, public education, and outreach programs. Extended documentation includes text, color photographs with descriptions, sixteen slides with descriptions, maps, copies of The Pelican Post newsletter, a description of research projects, Weeks Bay brochures and publications, flyers, newspaper coverage, and a video of Weeks Bay Estuarine Research Reserve.
