About Tybee Beach Ecology Trips
Tybee Beach Ecology Trips, conducted on Tybee Island, Georgia, by marine biologist Dr. Joe Richardson, are fun and educational experiences for all ages. Typical two-hour beach trips include: high and low tide beachcombing, exploring tide pools and sandy intertidal habitats, pulling a 50 foot beach net, and learning information about the animals you find. Trips are scheduled for families and small groups, scout groups, schools, adult tours, and other groups. Much more than just a beach trip!
