Donate to MDC

The holiday season is a time of charitable giving, and this year we encourage you to think of Marine Discovery Center.

Since our inception by motivated and passionate individuals in 1997 we’ve focused on educating our community through hands-on and feet-wet programs and working with partners to study and restore critical habitats like seagrass, oysters, marshes and mangroves. We need to continue educating our community on the fragility of this unique body of water while highlighting individual and community-wide solutions to Protect Our Lagoon. A healthy Indian River Lagoon equals a healthy community and requires all of us working together.

As we expand the depth of our reach we also expand the depth of our operational and program costs. The utility, insurance and maintenance bills don’t go away. Your support is needed as we continue to grow our mission and community influence. Help us meet the challenges that face the Indian River Lagoon and donate today. 

Through the end of 2019 your donation will be matched dollar for dollar during our end-of-year Annual Appeal. Your contribution (now doubled!) helps fund our mission of education, conservation, and exploration and goes towards protecting and restoring this national treasure.
