NATURAL

Our land is defined by the water that connects us. We are beaches, bays, rivers, creeks, swamps, marshes, islands, and shores. We are home to the nation’s last remaining unimpeded river and 36 miles of sandy beaches. Our water provides us ecological riches unrivaled in other places. Our environment creates seafood known worldwide, freshwater that flows abundant from artesian wells, and unmatched habitats that sustain untold species of flora and fauna.
