Children in Franklin County visited the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve last week as part of Bring Me A Book Franklin’s Fantastic Fridays. An estuary, such as Apalachicola Bay, is where freshwater and saltwater meet. Thank you, Research Reserve, for the day of learning, fun, and tattoos!

On Friday, August 3, the last of the Fantastic Fridays, the children will visit the Orman House Historic State Park. For information, email Karen Kessel at
