CEMA tests the county's weather warning siren systems each month on Wednesday at noon. During a real emergency event, the sirens will go off for three minutes, immediately followed by a voice announcement describing the type of emergency. During testing, the siren sounds for 30 seconds, followed by 30 minutes of additional, silent testing, and only after the silent testing completes, there will be a verbal announcement that "This is a test." In the event of inclement weather, during which the siren might be misinterpreted as a real weather emergency, testing will be cancelled.
You may also subscribe to Tybee's warning system to learn about weather emergencies, road closures, utility outages, calendar events, and more, through your choice of email, telephone, and/or text message by signing up at https://ga-tybeeisland.regroup.com/signup.

South beach walks depart from the science center where you’ll join one of our knowledgeable marine science educators on a guided walk of Tybee’s south beach. Learn about the dynamics of Georgia’s barrier islands, the importance of the intertidal zone, the forces behind the waves, Tybee’s unique tidal surge, and the role that sand dunes perform in keeping Tybee protected.

During our Turtle Talk, you’ll learn about anatomy and natural adaptations of sea turtles, discuss Tybee’s Sea Turtle Project conservation efforts, and meet our resident loggerhead sea turtle, Matthew. Based on program content, Turtle Talks are recommended for kids ages six and up.
July 4, 2018, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
On a marsh trek, you’ll enjoy a hands-on exploration of Georgia’s salt marsh, searching the mud for fiddler crabs, snails, and more. Learn about adaptations necessary for survival in this environment, how the marsh functions as a nursery for many organisms, a filter for pollutants, and as an abundant food source. Please wear closed-toed, closed-heel shoes, such as rain boots or old tennis shoes (no flip flops or Crocs) and expect to get muddy. Marsh Treks meet off-site from the science center, on the north end of the island at Spanish Hammock. Directions are provided with paid program confirmation.

Visible from nearly everywhere on Tybee, the fireworks show delights visitors every year! You will not be disappointed!
Be aware that after the fireworks, departure from the island is a long and arduous process. Because of all the traffic departing at once, delays add up to several hours to get to Bull River, so be prepared to relax! We recommend some time at one of the island's restaurants, or even stay the night, although if you don't have reservations by now, you'll be out of luck! Patience is important! Don't drive drunk! Be sure NOT to use your phone due to the new distracted driving law in Georgia.
