Join the GTM Research Reserve, in partnership with the National Park Service. Hikers will be taken to the shore to learn about Inlet dynamics and more. At the north end of the Inlet is a bird sanctuary where you might see wood storks and least terns. You can also learn about seashells, coquina rock, dune vegetation, heavy minerals, mollusks, dune vegetation, and the history of beach sand.
Meet your guides at the Matanzas Inlet, at the parking lot on the west side of A1A, north of the Matanzas Inlet Bridge. See the temporary GTM Research Reserve Event sign posted on A1A. Please RSVP online or by calling 904-823-4500.
