Many native plants, clearly labeled so you know what you are looking at (horticultural name too). Stopped at the Pitcher Plant Bog, but being winter, the plants were sleeping. Interesting displays at the nature center.

We were interested in the wildlife around the area of Gulf Shores. We got to the Weeks Estuary early one morning. The welcome center has many displays which children would love. There is a mile Boardwalk loop. The trees are labelled which I loved. The bay view is sensational. Across the road there is a walk around a bog with... More

Weeks Bay is good to visit in your boat! You can go here for Fishing, Shrimping, Water skiing whatever you like. It is nice out here and you can go do whatever you like whereever you want. This is a nice quiet place to visit.

I love the pitcher plant bog trail, the Nature Center, and the boardwalk that leaves from the Nature Center. It's a great place to take visitors to the area to see natural, coastal habitat.

Weeks Bay is so relaxing. We took our dog and walked along the boardwalks. It was so much fun. Loved all the flora and fauna being identified. It makes learning fun. The pier at the end of the boardwalk was incredible looking over Weeks Bay.

I have had the opportunity over the last few years to work with the staff at WBR teaching environmental education to local school groups. It is a great and close field trip for young and old. I'm still learning about all the plants and animals that call Weeks Bay, an estuary surrounded by wetlands... home.

If in the area, a must see. The ecology is explained in exhibits and narratives, along with some history. There is a raised walkway. Vegetation is labeled. It ends at the Bay which is a beautiful view.

Took 5 and 6 year olds, loved the nature walks and seeing marine creatures up close. Great views of Fish River, Weeks Bay, easy drive from the beach.

We were told to go there to see about getting a fishing trip from the locals. It was clean but not inviting. The road ended there and it didn't want me want to stay.
