There are yearly cycles of natural events that shape the character and complexity of Apalachicola Bay and the land surrounding it. Shrimp hatch and grow in their uncountable numbers; shoals of fishes patrol the shallows and depths; diving and wading birds feed on the multitude of marine creatures; dolphin whelp their young and teach them to hunt; gentle manatees roam; eagles and ospreys soar above the waterscape; storms rage and kind breezes blow. These yearly events are the seasons of Apalachicola Bay.
