Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower all people to be active stewards of the environment and their own well-being.


The Environmental Learning Center (ELC) is a 64-Acre Natural Lagoon Island Preserve open to the public and great for all ages! Experience native Florida in a peaceful lagoon setting with beautiful vistas and close-up encounters with wildlife and native plants in a setting that inspires wellness. Come experience the #IndianRiverLagoon through our extensive boardwalks and walking trails, learn about native plants in our Greenhouse, take a canoe or pontoon boat ride with our EcoVentures, experience our 145 gallon Touch Tank at our Discovery Station and Aquariums where you'll learn all about the lagoon. Enjoy the benefits of membership where your member dollars go to the education and preservation of the Indian River Lagoon and the wellness of our community through close contact with nature.

Our treasured volunteers are the key to our running and growing our programs, keeping our campus vibrant and being a welcoming presence to our many visitors on our island lagoon campus. Join over 260 volunteers who have made the Environmental Learning Center the center for environmental education and wellness through nature for all in our community!
