The Manatee Observation and Education Center is a waterfront environmental education and wildlife viewing center located on Florida’s east coast in beautiful downtown Fort Pierce. The Center lies just west of the Atlantic ocean and overlooks the nationally recognized Indian River Lagoon, a saltwater estuary, and Moore’s Creek, a freshwater tributary and historical resting spot for the Florida manatee.
The Manatee Observation and Education Center’s primary purpose is to promote understanding and responsible actions for the fragile ecosystems of the Treasure Coast and their inhabitants. We are here to educate you about nature, how humans impact the environment, and teach ways to interact with our natural environment to lessen that impact.
