  • The beautiful setting and learning about the environment in which we live. We loved the pontoon boats and kayaking in the mangroves. Great experience for everyone in the family.  more »
  • The ELC is one of the jewels of the Treasure Coast. The activities and educational events are second to none and appeal to every age group. The Pontoon Boat trip is the best "on-water" experience on.....  more »

  • Very natural. Raised path (boardwalk) through mangroves. Fun to spot all the different crabs and lizards. Interesting facts about the habitat, sprinkled throughout. Nice to sit on the bench on the dock and enjoy the peaceful tranquility, while keeping an eye out for wildlife. Fish jumping out of the water. An osprey perched in a tree. They have a small touch tank, but note only limited hours. Some other hands on activities for kids. But personally, I think the small hide and seek the lizards, crabs and all small wildlife is enough to entertain little ones who like to run around. Very, very nice volunteers. If you stroll through and relax and appreciate nature for what it is, this is a little gem.
  • A friend and I went on the Pontoon Boat experience to Pelican Island for two hours this morning. We saw several dolphins and lots of different bird species. Our volunteer guide, Dave, did a fantastic job making it interesting and informative. If you love seeing nature, this trip is for you.
