Weeks Bay Reserve, a part of theNational Estuary System, promotes estuarine research and education within Alabama's coastal zone,itencompasses more than 6,000 acres of tidal and forested wetlands within the greater Mobile Bay estuarine system along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Weeks Bay is a small estuary fringed with a variety of wetland habitats receiving freshwater from the Fish and Magnolia Rivers. Located along the eastern shore of Mobile Bay between the major metropolitan areas of Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL, the Reserve's land (1,645 acres) and water (4,880 acres) habitats support numerous rare and endangered species including the brown pelican, eastern indigo snake and the Alabama red-bellied turtle. Fire dependent, pitcher plant bogs contain a myriad of rare species and are easily accessible on the Reserve's self-guiding nature trails.

The reserve's Interpretive Center includes a museum area with displays about the local habitats, history and culture. The Center grounds are landscaped with native plants and scattered with picnic tables. Exhibits include a plethora of dynamic taxidermy of many native animals and plants, backlit exhibit panels, an extensive specimen collection, a live animal room and other cultural and historical displays The Education & Research building includes a small auditorium, dormitory and kitchen for visiting researchers and small research library.
