As part of Visit Tybee’s fall promotion, Tybee Island is the Ultimate Fall Getaway, the Tybee Marine Science Center is offering islanders and visitors alike half-price tickets for their popular Marsh Trek program.
Starting Saturday, September 1st through Tuesday, December 31th, the one-hour Marsh Trek, normally $10, will be available for $5 per person. Marsh Treks are offered daily at 4 pm.
Participants can sign-up in person at the center or online at www.tybeemarinescience.org. The program is appropriate for all ages.
“We are excited to be working with Visit Tybee on this promotion and encouraging visitors to see more than just Tybee’s beach,” said Maria Procopio, executive director for the science center. She continued, “experiencing the marsh with a marine science educator explaining the sights, sounds, and smells is an amazing way to connect with nature whether you’re a resident or a visitor.”
The view on either side of the causeway (Highway 80) onto Tybee Island is flanked by the marsh, and the Marsh Trek provides an opportunity for hands-on exploration of this unique eco-system.
