Wonderful view of water , birds and stray fisherman. Looks east so great place to view sunrise. Some fisherman use the pier and lots of birdwatchers. On shore large wire sculpture filled with plastic and aluminum debris from the water. Interesting.

My Garden Circle took the boat trip, it was a wonderful experience. A naturalist explained each animal that we netted, we were allowed to hold them if we so wished. After the animals were discussed they were released.

You can see the marshes from a park along Highway 17 in Brunswick. A better way to see them and walk parts of the area is to go across the Lanier Bridge and visit the Earth Day Nature Trail. Lovely spot with good trails and...More
