Welcome!

   The Environmental Studies Council, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, was
 established in 1978 to support, protect and enhance the unique environmental 
 educational programs of the Environmental Studies Center. The Council 
 promotes and extends environmental awareness through community education.
 
   If you live in Martin County, FL, chances are you or your child has attended the
 Environmental Studies Center, located on Indian River Drive in Jensen Beach. The
 Center provides a science-based, hands-on environmental education curriculum to
 students in Martin County schools. During school hours, the center is also open for
 free visits by the public interested in touring our aquariums, shark tank, turtle tank,
 classrooms, Joey the Alligator and butterfly garden. Our popular summer  camps and Mars Lecture Series also helps encourage stewardship in our beautiful  natural environment by our community's children and adults.

   We are blessed to live in Martin County, with its estuaries, beaches and preserved
 areas -- we hope through education that our natural resources will be pristine for
 our children and grandchildren. The Environmental Studies Council is supported
 through generous donations from local residents interested in keeping
 environmental  education available to all Martin County children. To learn
 more, please call the center at (772) 334-4643.

   The Council supports the Center through community stewardship
 and various community-based fund raising and educational activities.
