About the Center
To create environmental awareness within the students of Martin County which can be carried into the home, school and community.
About the Center:
The Environmental Studies Center is operated by the Martin County Public School System. Students in kindergarten through seventh grade classes visit the Center each year to participate in hands-on field investigations. In addition we also serve high school Marine and Environmental Science classes. Students explore the Indian River Lagoon, Hutchinson Island beaches, mangrove communities, freshwater ponds and wetlands. The Center is home to a wide variety of fish and reptiles, including a loggerhead sea turtle and alligators.
ESC is closed to the public during the week because of our scheduled field trips but we have special events planned throughout the year to ensure the public has a chance to learn and be a part of the "Gem" of Martin County.
