Navarre Beach Marine Science Station


The mission of the Navarre Beach Marine Science Station is to promote

the appreciation, conservation, and understanding of the marine ecosystem

of coastal Florida through education and service.



I remember when they began this project. Its a great resource for our community.

From the website: 

In late 2008, marine science students held a town hall meeting and led several presentations for the Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioners and the SRC School Board about converting an empty, unoccupied ranger station into an environmental center.  After overwhelming positive response from the community, students succeeded in obtaining the site in March 2009.  Over 2,000 community service hours later the students, under faculty supervision had created what is now the Navarre Beach Marine Science Station.  Since its official opening in August 2009, the Station has been host to well over 4,000 students and community members for programs concerning the local marine environments.  The programs provide hands-on, feet-wet curriculum that educates and challenges participants from ages 3-33+ on how to be stewards of our marine environment.  New programs have expanded to now include two high schools of duel-enrolled students (through Pensacola State College and Santa Rosa County Schools), field experiences for K-8 school children, Saturday programs for K-8 students, over-night programs for 3-8th graders, public open houses for visitors to Navarre Beach, summer camps, and programs geared for both pre-K students and their family and for students with special needs.  All of the programs are designed to leave participants with a new found understanding and respect for their nearby marine ecosystems, as well a desire to protect and conserve the delicate habitats of Florida.
