  • PLANT SALE/NATIONAL ESTURARIES DAY

    9:00 AM
    Estuarium

    The Dauphin Island Sea Lab will celebrate National Estuaries Day on Saturday, September 23 with half price admission to the Estuarium from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nationwide, Restore America’s Estuaries partners with organizations like the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and the National Estuary Program to shine a spotlight on the importance of our estuaries.  Estuaries, like Mobile Bay, are where freshwater meets saltwater. Our estuaries are economically and environmentally important, because they serve as a nursery habitat for many commercially and recreationally important fish and shellfish, such as oysters, shrimp and red snapper. It is important for us to be good stewards and protect this vital part of our community. Along with the self-guided tour of the Estuarium,  Discovery Hall Programs will have displays for you to learn about the animals living in our estuary, the dangers they face, and how you can protect their habitat. While you’re there, check out the Town-sponsored Fall Plant Sale and Give-Away that will be held in the parking lot across from the Estuarium. Multiple vendors will be on site offering a variety of plants for sale. Dauphin Island property owners will want to visit the Town’s booth to receive an assortment of free trees, plants, sea oats and more! The plant sale will run from 9am to noon.
