Welcome to Grand Bay Wetland Education Center

A partnership between Coastal Plains RESA and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the mission of Grand Bay Wetland Education Center (GBWECC) is to teach students about natural processes and relationships between plants and animals. 

GBWEC offers education programs and field trips. Students can experience a positive connection with the natural world and their place in caring for the environment.

The educational focus of the center is on wetland ecology, wildlife, plant identification, air quality, and plant adaptations. The center also offers a 1/2 mile boardwalk, a 54 foot tower, and an education center.

The boardwalk, tower, picnic area, bathrooms, and fishing areas are open to the public after 2 p.m. on school days and all day on weekends, holidays, and summer.
