Mission Statement

It is the mission of BOLD to sustain a portion of Florida’s original habitats, in the Little Manatee River Watershed, and to promote appreciation and better understanding of our natural resources, local history and culture through education.


The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is operated in partnership with Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department. This Center is located in Ruskin, Florida, along the Little Manatee River. It is currently open Thursday- Saturday, 9AM- 2PM. It has been in operation since 1999, through the efforts of volunteers, donations, grants and supporters from all walks of life. We expect to maintain self-sufficiency through programs, donations, grants and membership dues. The 7 -member BOLD Board oversees one volunteer Manager. The Center has the potential to become an outstanding educational center, one that serves the entire population- not just a single school grade or the wealthy or the disadvantaged- everyone who is interested in the world around them: its past, present and ultimately its future.
