WHERE DO YOUR SPONSORSHIP DOLLARS GO?

An integral part of our primary mission is teaching environmental education to our future lagoon stewards, through interactive hands-on exhibits and experiences. We accomplish this through a variety of facets:

Education, Exhibits and Events:

New exhibits and educational items keep the Discovery Center learning experience relevant, fresh and vibrant. Our unique events,
festivals and outreaches allow us to give back to the community while raising friends, funds and awareness.

Sponsorship dollars provide transportation to and from school sites, and craft supplies for young stewards to take their learning experience home.

Education and School Field trips
  • Over 40,000 visitors

  • 40 students daily in Preschool Playdates

  • 300 students yearly through Discovery Kids Camps

  • 10,599 students through the Academy of Environmental Stewardship School Program

Outreach
  • 4 adult learning/rehabilitation-work groups

  • 15 annual corporate outreaches

  • 1200 volunteers

Events and Exhibits
  • 12 events and 25 daily exhibits

Critter, Native Garden and Trail Care

All our animals have different stories, but the majority are rehoused from community members or have been found in the wild, and the Discovery Center becomes their new family.

 

Our Native Garden and Trails are able to flourish due to the help of volunteers and it demands much more than they can provide alone.

 

Sponsorship dollars keep our critters happy, healthy and provided for while our Native Garden as well as our Trails receive fresh ground cover, removal of invasive species, and re-planting of area’s that have been hard-hit by drought and erosion.

Native Garden and Trail Care
  • 600 different types of plants in our ecosystem

  • 3.1 miles of public access easements

  • 132 acres of open space in the Coastal Zone

  • Algerian Sea Lavender removal (an invasive species) in partnership with USFWS

Critter Care
  • 30 animal ambassadors who call the Discovery Center home

We invite you to INVEST in this “taste of nature” outreach.
