FUN ON THE WATER AT ELC
The Environmental Learning Center has two opportunities this summer to explore our beautiful lagoon. Canoe Excursions are held every 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month through December 31 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. The cost is $15 for adults and $7 for children ages 8 to 11. Pontoon Boat Excursions are on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. The cruise takes you by Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge (the nation’s first national wildlife refuge) and mangrove islands where birds, manatees, and dolphins gather. ELC’s naturalist guide provides just the right touch of education through commentary and props, and will also provide information about ways we can positively impact the Indian River Lagoon. ELC will even provide binoculars for a better view! The cost is $30 for adults; $10 for children (ages 4 to 11) and a 20% discount is given to ELC members. Call (772) 589-5050 ext. 114 to reserve a seat.
