Marine Environmental Education Center, Hollywood

#11 of 13 in Parks in Hollywood
The Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) at the Carpenter House was opened with the desire to educate and delight locals and tourists alike through our educational green sea turtle, Captain, and the splendor of the coastal environment in South Florida.

The MEEC was fostered from a partnership between Broward County Parks and Recreation and Nova Southeastern University. The facility is located on the historic grounds of the Carpenter House at Hollywood North Beach Park in Hollywood, Florida.

The site features our very own green turtle, as well as an interactive Interpretive Center with displays ranging on topics from sea turtle conservation to marine debris. Additionally, we offer programs for the public on various coastal ecology and sea turtle topics, as well as programming specifically for school groups with a curriculum tailored to the marine sciences.

If you’re ready to meet a turtle and explore the wonders of our South Florida Beach Ecosystems, then Seek the MEEC and head on down to the Carpenter House Marine Environmental Education Center!
