GA DNR Set to Host Annual Beach Week Event on Tybee Island

Brunswick, Ga. (6/21/2017)

For the past 10 years Tybee Island beach-goers have had the opportunity to learn more about the natural wonders of the Georgia coast as part of the area’s annual 4th of July celebration when the Georgia DNR hosts “Beach Week”. This year Tybee Island visitors can experience Beach Week at the Tybee Marine Science Center Parking Lot on Tuesday, June 27th from 10am to 3pm.

Joining GA DNR/Coastal Resources and Law Enforcement Divisions will be exhibitors from Grays Reef National Marine Sanctuary, UGA Marine Extension Service, Ft. Stewart Fish and Wildlife Branch, Okefenokee FWS, Department of Public Health, and Tybee Marine Science Center.

New this year! Visitors can enjoy the music of Michael Hulett at Beach Week on Tybee Island. Hulett’s saxophone and vocals captivate audiences with his repertoire of classics from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and old favorite R/B songs like My Girl and Sugar Pie Honey Bunch.

DNR will be showcasing the new Marine Habitat License Plate. Available now through local tag offices in Georgia, residents have an opportunity to help enhance coastal fish and wildlife populations through the purchase of this new specialty license plate for their vehicle and boat trailer. The majority of the sales proceeds for the marine habitat plate featuring a red drum will go into a dedicated fund to restore and enhance fish habitat in Georgia’s estuaries and the Atlantic Ocean.
