The Florida Oceanographic Society

One of the gems of Martin County is the Florida Oceanographic Society’s Coastal Center located on South Hutchinson Island in Stuart on the banks of the Intracoatal Waterway (Indian River).  This 57 acre marine nature center offers rewarding educational programs for local residents, visitors and children year round.

In addition the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center conducts research and programs to maintain and restore a healthy coastal marine environment.  Under the direction of Mark Perry, who’s been the executive director for the past 35 years, this center conducts extensive monitoring of the Indian River Lagoon where over 4,000 species of animals are fighting to co-exist with our society’s intrusion and pollution. 

If you live on the Treasure Coast or are visiting, take some time to see the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center.  Or even better, join the Oceanographic Society to aid in their educational, research and restoration efforts.  The center is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Saturday and from Noon to 4 pm on Sundays.

Here are some links to the society’s programs:

I have always been fascinated by this topic.  When I was a kid one of the first things of many I wanted to be when I grew up was a Marine Biologist.  I bet you could spend an entire day here.

Gabe, It is nice that you are helping spread the word about this Center. One can learn so much by taking time to see what is going on with our coastal marine environment.
