ACE Basin NERR

Gators in the ACE Basin

The ACE Basin, located 45 minutes south of Charleston, SC, is one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the east coast of the United States. The ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) was designated in 1992 as a partnership program between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). The ACE Basin NERR aims to protect the natural beauty, abundant wildlife and unique cultural heritage of the area through long-term research, water-quality monitoring, education and coastal stewardship.
