The Friends of the Sea Lab

As a Friend of the Sea Lab, not only will you receive the opportunity to visit the Estuarium, your membership has other substantial benefits. You will be supporting the Sea Lab in its mission to educate the public about the scientific wonders and fragile beauty of our native ecosystems: the Delta, the Bay, the Barrier Islands and the near-shore Gulf of Mexico.

For example: you, too, can land a "fish" on our Living Marsh Boardwalk! For $50, a plaque with your name, your family name, your school class, or a loved one will be permanently displayed on our beautiful wooden boardwalk. Call (251) 861-2141 ext 7545 for more information.
