The Marine Discovery Center has spent over 20 years informing and educating citizens and guests about the amazing biodiversity of the Indian River Lagoon.
Tagged as the most biologically diverse estuary in North America, the Indian River Lagoon boasts more than 4,000 species and spans 156 miles down Florida’s east coast — providing countless ways to engage the public. Programs at MDC for all ages are designed to offer hands-on, feet-wet learning opportunities through classes, camps, lectures, boat and kayak eco-tours with certified naturalists and teachers.
We invite you to learn more about all we have to offer.
