Tour the center for  experiencing a hands-on touch tank, viewing a baby alligator, and more. Walk the nature trails or even bring your boat, kayaks or stand-up-paddleboards to tour the Fish River. You may encounter dolphins, pelicans, and other wildlife.

Weeks Bay Interpretive Center/Nature Trails

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. Self-guiding nature trails wind through wetlands, marshes, forests and a pitcher plant bog.

Weeks Bay Interpretive Center is located on Hwy 98 between Fairhope and Foley, just west of the Fish River Bridge, in South Baldwin Co, AL

Discover what estuaries are, how humans impact them, and how your children/students can become stewards of these ecosystems. For 15 middle school curriculum activities designed by the education coordinators of the National Estuarine Research Reserve System click here. These would be great activities for parents to do with their children this summer as well as for teachers to add into their curriculum next year.
