We were looking for something to do on a cloudy and somewhat rainy day since going to the beach was out. This place was recommended it to us and it was right over the bridge from St. George Island. It was a very neat and informative place and best of all it was FREE! ( They do ask for a donation.)
We took a peaceful walk through native plants to get to the nature center. We started out with a quick movie, in a comfortable air conditioned room, about the Apalachicola bay. It was very interesting and quite a complex ecosystem. Inside the nature center we learned more about the history of the area, especially the oyster business. The oyster have such a unique flavor and we learned it was due to the bay's mix of fresh and salt water. There are also a few tanks that show case local fish, but it's not a huge display.
Before leaving, we took the boardwalk to the bay overlook. The whole place is not very big, but it was a nice way to spend a few hours.
