Visitors Get Excited about Estuaries

This past Saturday was National Estuaries Day, an event that is celebrated throughout the United States. We are fortunate to have our very own [Mission-Aransas] National Estuarine Research Reserve located right here to help celebrate and commemorate what special places our estuaries are. This year visitors participated in several games and activities that imparted why estuaries are important and how they can also be fun. Stay tuned for next year’s event – Saturday September 24, 2016.
