Interpretive Center

The Coastal Resources Center houses our interpretive center. The theme of our center is “Living on the Edge—the Nature of Change”. The educational exhibits highlight how the biodiversity of the saltwater and freshwater habitats of the reserve and the Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge can impacted by a variety of natural and manmade changes. Additionally, several exhibits interpret the green features of our GOLD LEED CERTIFIED sustainable building. Click here to learn about some of the green features of our building.

The Coastal Resources Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 AM till 3 PM.
