This Valentine’s Day we’re celebrating with #iheartestuaries!

I heart Estuaries

This Valentine’s Day show how truly, madly, deeply you love estuaries and key funding programs by using #iheartestuaries.

For those of you who don’t already know, an estuary is the area along coastlines where freshwater rivers connect and mix with the salty ocean. They’re as dependent on us as we are on them! Florida’s estuaries provide more than 95 percent of our recreational and commercially important fishes, crustaceans and shellfish. I heart Estuaries

GTM Research Reserve is one of 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves in the U.S. and is the perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day with a loved one. Relax, rejuvenate, connect and explore the reserve!
