Interested in visiting a freshwater estuary?  The National Estuarine Research Reserve system added another Reserve site in October 2010 raising the number of Reserves to 28 around the United States.   The Lake Superior NERR is comprised of approximately 16,000 acres and is located along the confluence of the St. Louis River and Lake Superior.   You may see some familiar habitats within their Reserve boundary including freshwater marshes, sandy  beaches, and dunes.   Have you visited all 28 Reserves?   We encourage you to do so and you can start by visiting the Lake Superior NERR or stop by and see us here in Delaware.  For more information on the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve visit them on the web and for information on the Delaware NERR please visit our website or like us on Facebook.
