Coronavirus (COVID-19) status update

Out of an abundance of caution to help keep people safe during the coronavirus outbreak, the exhibits at the Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Bay are closed to the public until further notice. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and appreciate your understanding in advance.

Padilla Bay Reserve's facility has expanded over the years.

  • The Breazeale Interpretive Center houses our aquarium, exhibits, theater, and library.
  • The Breazeale family farm house is now used for staff offices.
  • Our laboratory is where scientists research Padilla Bay and beyond.
  • Our barn is now used for storage and staff offices.
  • Our guest house is available to visiting educators and researchers.

Meeting spaces are available to other state agencies and environmental groups.
