Florida Master Naturalist Program
The mission of the Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP) is to promote awareness, understanding, and respect of Florida’s natural world among Florida’s citizens and visitors.
The Sea Squirts Program introduces marine life to children ages 2-5 years. Adults will accompany their children to the program. Activities may include examinations of species both skeletal and alive, arts and crafts, stories, audio visual presentations, and games.
Homeschool Science Series
These one-hour science classes are for home school students ages 6-10. Topics will vary with each session but will place emphasis on coastal ecosystems and include a combination of indoor and outdoor activities.
Meet the Raptors
Join us on a select Monday of each month to learn about the interesting world of raptors. Gina Holt, founder of Wild About Birds, Inc., will be in the Marine Discovery Classroom for an hour-long program featuring some of the raptors that she cares for.
We currently have two webinar series. Our MDC Little Lessons are geared for Pre-K through 2nd grade and cover a variety of animal topics, and the Coastal Connections series teaches people of all ages about restoration and research.
