“I remember that first marsh walk very, very well. I was a little scared I would see an alligator but I think I had watched too much ‛Crocodile Hunter.’ There were hundreds of fiddler crabs running everywhere, and we came back covered in mud … it was wonderful.”

Chris Nowicki, of Savannah, attended several Georgia 4-H Camps on Jekyll Island as a teenager. The marsh walk, a hands-on exploration of Jekyll’s salt marsh ecosystem, continues to be a favorite activity for campers.
