About This Organizer

The Environmental Studies Center is operated by the Martin County Public School System.  Students in kindergarten through seventh grade and high school marine biology and environmental science classes visit the Center each year to participate in hands-on field investigations.  Students explore the St. Lucie Estuary, Indian River Lagoon, Hutchinson Island’s beaches, mangrove swamps and freshwater ponds and wetlands. The Center is home to a wide variety of marine life and other species.

 

Preserved specimens and models are displayed in the classrooms.  Computers and stereoscopes are used as part of the learning experience.  The River Scout, a 30 foot T-craft, is the Center’s floating classroom for 5th and 6th graders. 

 

Each summer, we host four weeks of camp, including Camp WET, Wave Runners Day Camp, and Sea Fans Day Camp.

Established in 1972, the Environmental Studies Center has been recognized by the Office of Environmental Education and the Governor’s Environmental Education Award.
