Explore Jekyll Island's Ecology

Located on the southwest side of Jekyll Island, adjacent to the salt marsh on the pristine 'Tidelands' salt pond, 4-H Tidelands Nature Center offers hands-on coastal ecology programs for the general public and school groups, guided kayak tours, canoe rentals, and a live coastal species exhibit gallery. In keeping with Georgia 4-H Environmental Education program objectives, Tidelands strives to develop an awareness, knowledge, and appreciation for the environment, as we connect participants with Georgia's coastal ecosystems.
