Weeks Bay Nature Reserve
Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is part of a national network of coastal reserves established as living laboratories for long-term scientific research and estuarine education. The Reserve was designated in 1986 and is managed as a cooperative partnership between the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with additional support from the 500-member nonprofit Weeks Bay Foundation and volunteers. The Weeks Bay Interpretive Center offers the public opportunities to learn about coastal habitats through its exhibits, live animal displays, and collections of animals and regional plants.
