  • Bay Days
    Sat, Oct 14
    October's regularly scheduled TRAM Tour will not take place on the second Friday due to the Fall Bay Day Celebration which will be held on Saturday, October 14th. There will be 4 TRAM Tours on October 14th beginning at 9:30 am ET and continuing throughout the day at 11am, 12:30, 2pm. There is also a birding trip, departing from the Visitor Center at 8 am ET. A Low Country Boil with fresh-caught local shrimp, Kielbasa sausage, new potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, and onions is one of the highlights of the day. This delicious plate is served with coleslaw, garlic bread and sweet tea. All this for a $10 donation. Bay Day is presented by the Friends of St. Joseph Bay Preserves.
    A recently added opportunity is the Live Auction which is held on the Thursday night, starting at 6pm ET, before the Saturday event. Great items will be offered for a donation to the Friends. Charter Fishing, restaurant certificates, places to stay, and many services such as haircuts, facials, spa treatments, and many more opportunities to make your day. Over 220 Sponsors have contributed items to make the Live Auction on Thursday, the Silent Auction and Raffle on Saturday one of the best events in the area.
