Welcome to Inlet and Bay Stewards
Supporting the North Inlet - Winyah Bay Reserve
Inlet & Bay Stewards (IBIS) is a volunteer organization that supports South Carolina's North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Located at historic Hobcaw Barony, our Reserve is a vital local resource for environmental education, science, and data that promotes community resilience to storm surge and flooding

What we do
We are your ambassadors to the North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve! The only thing we love more than learning about our estuary is sharing what we learn in one of the most beautiful settings in South Carolina.
We play an active role in Reserve school programs, helping children discover the wonder of fiddler crabs and snails, while enhancing their science education.
We also educate and energize our fellow citizens through events like the Carolina Beach and River Clean Up and workshops on topics including how to build your own rain barrel.
