It might be February, but that’s no excuse not to be on the beach! Especially since our weather is getting warmer by the week here on Tybee. There are so many things to do on the beach, no matter what time of year, and one such activity is planning a beach walk with Tybee Beach Ecology Trips! Explore our island’s beautiful beaches, and learn something new, with local marine biologist, Dr. Joe Richardson. Dr. Richardson tries to plan trips around the low tides so you can experience the full range of Tybee’s coastal habitats.
On a walk, you’ll see and explore tide pools, pull seine net, observe animals and see their adaptations, beach comb, and much more! A Beach Ecology Trip is perfect for groups of all sizes and ages, from families, to school groups, and even adult tour groups. These walks are a fun way to interact with the unique environment of the Georgia coast while you discover and learn about coastal life along the beaches of our state, as well as those of Florida and South Carolina.
To learn more about Dr. Richardson’s trips, or to schedule a trip for your group, make sure to visit the Tybee Beach Ecology website. You can also follow them on Facebook, or simply give them a ring at 912-596-5362! Don’t wait for summer…anytime is a great time to learn more about our beautiful beach!
