Sturgeon City Environmental Education Center

Sturgeon City is home to water quality and environmental restoration projects that helped bring back life to Wilson Bay and parts of the New River. For decades, Sturgeon City has hosted valuable environmental education programs such as field trips, summer camps, outreach programs and more. 

With construction complete in June of 2019, the new state-of-the-art Sturgeon City Environmental Education Center allows for even more learning opportunities on-site that supplement the past and current efforts to restore Wilson Bay, the New River, and our coastal wetlands. The Center features approximately 11,000 square feet of programming space, helping to expand the educational programs offered.
