Join us to celebrate and support Florida Oceanographic Society and its mission to inspire environmental stewardship of Florida's coastal ecosystems through education, research and advocacy.   

Join us for an oyster shell bagging at the Coastal Center and help bag oyster shells that will eventually be deployed into the Indian River Lagoon!

On February 21, Governor Ron DeSantis stopped by the Coastal Center to announce that he appointed Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch to the South Water Management Governing Board!
