We are planning for the resumption of near-normal operations for field trips and overnight stays at Seahorse Key in fall 2021, with precautions for facial covering and distancing indoors. We are taking tentative reservations for activities, but final approval for day trips and overnight stays will occur in late summer 2021. Please email ncbs@ifas.ufl.edu to make reservations, but we ask that you recognize that these reservations are tentative pending final approval in late summer 2021.

K-12 Programming is only available 4 days per month and is first-come-first-serve basis.

Field-based Learning for K-12 Students

Our motto is conservation through education. Register your K-12 group for immersion in field lab experiences that use sound science to explore and explain watersheds, estuarine and marine ecology, and the organisms that call the Nature Coast home.

The absolute cost per program is dependent on the number of program participants and specific program parameters. That cost will be communicated when requesting to register for a program. Scroll down for the request form.
