Forever Explorers

Forever Explorers is a new hands-on, feet-wet experience designed for young-at-heart, lifelong learners who want to explore their coastal environment.

Whether you’re new to the area or have called Florida home for many years, you likely know the importance of the natural world to our coastal community…but perhaps you want to learn more! Let Marine Discovery Center’s certified naturalists engage you in a fun and unique educational exploration of the Indian River Lagoon and the flora and fauna that thrive here.

Participants will explore the roles of salt marshes, mudflats and various saltwater plants and animals by visiting different spoil islands on MDC’s pontoon boat, Discovery. Not only will you have the chance to see beloved animals like dolphins and manatees, but you will get off the boat and explore marshes and sandbars and use seine nets to identify different species that call this estuary home.
