Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve

Visit The Reserve's Nature Center

Anytime between 9am and 4pm, Tuesday - Saturday

The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve's home is located at 108 Island Drive (State Road 300) at Cat Point in Eastpoint, Florida. Visitors enter along a winding nature path and learn about local habitat types. Exhibits and aquaria inside give them a sense of where they are in Florida and the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint watershed. A coastal walk from the Nature Center to the shoreline gives further opportunities to learn about and enjoy the natural setting. Below are guides to additional recreation opportunities within the Reserve.
