The list of things to do at the Environmental Learning Center is endless. There are activities catering to almost any age group to keep everyone in the group occupied and on their toes and the center is filled with activities designed to show you what you would be missing if the environment was not properly taken care of. For people who love the outdoors and want to engage in physical activity, the Environmental Learning Center has long stretches of explorable trekking paths that are nested away in the midst of lush trees. There are also guided trails that are ideal for those who want to experience this secret and beautiful side of Florida while not having to bother about losing their way. The tours are especially extremely beneficial to those who would like to know about their trekking surroundings as well as the local wildlife.
For those who would like a more up-close and personal experience with some of the animals here, the Environmental Learning Center has a large “touch-tank” where visitors can have a hands-on experience in learning how to care for the wildlife. The Environmental Learning Center also has a fully functional greenhouse that is home to over hundreds of different species of flora and fauna and is especially famous for housing very rare plants, some of which are only native to Florida. The tours also extend to this part of the Environmental Learning Center, with informational sessions on the plants grown here. This is a special treat because the greenhouse and its numerous plants tend to attract a myriad of butterflies.
For a more relaxing experience, visitors can enjoy a boat ride down the lagoon and get a water-side glimpse of the entire center and the surrounding greenery. Those who prefer a solo experience can also take a canoe and explore Florida’s beautiful lagoon waters. Photo: Environmental Learning Center
