A diverse class of children look through microscopes on a table set up outside in a forest

We offer environmental education programs for a variety of audiences in partnership with the University of Florida's Seahorse Key Marine Research Lab. Seahorse Key provides a unique and exciting outdoor environment –  an excellent location for hands-on learning activities.  Hundreds of youth visit every year to learn about a specific topic on marine science, habitat, or ecological processes.

Is your school interested in learning more about the wildlife, plants, habitats and ecology of an island?  Contact  352/493-0238 to check on program availability and reservation policies. Refuges are wild places, and we want to teach you more about them!
