Let's tell you a little more about us: The Environmental Learning Center was founded in 1988 by a group of environmentally conscious pioneers from the Pelican Island Audubon Society who lived in our community and cherished the wonders of nature that thrive in the Indian River Lagoon. Through the support of our members,  our board  our staff andvolunteers we are able to continue and evolve our mission to bring nature to all: To create a beautiful, unspoiled place to lead programs and EcoAdventures, to teach others about the rich biodiversity of our Indian River Lagoon and the importance of it's heritage and continued legacy in our community.
