Manatee Observation and Education Center

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. We are a not-for-profit organization operated by four full-time staff members and over 100 volunteers. The Center lies just west of the Atlantic ocean and straddles the nationally recognized Indian River Lagoon, a saltwater estuary, and Moore's Creek, a freshwater tributary. The site is a historical congregating place for Florida manatees as a result of warm water effluent from the long-retired Henry B. King Power Plant. While the plant is no longer there, it continues to be a congregating place for manatees and visitors alike. Come inside the Center to learn about manatees and other wild animals, Florida's diverse habitats, and much more. Explore hands-on exhibits and informational displays that are both fun and educational. Stand along the covered observation walkway or climb the second story observation tower for your chance to see Florida's "Gentle Giants" resting or playing in Moore's Creek. You may also see a variety of other wildlife including the Bottlenose Dolphin, Mullet, Brown Pelicans, and Terns. Stroll through the Center's gardens where red, yellow, and purple flowers abound. We are striving to replace exotic plants with native plants to attract Florida's colorful butterflies. Visit our latest installment - the Florida native butterfly garden - complete with accessible hand-constructed arbors, mosaic benches from local artists, and more along the beautiful Moore’s Creek in Downtown Fort Pierce.

Long famous for its Key Marco Cat — one of the most remarkable and influential discoveries in North American archaeology — the Marco Island Historical Museum explores Southwest Florida’s Calusa Indians and brings this vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an exciting recreated village scene. Permanent and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation.

The Morean Arts Center is located within the heart of the Central Arts District. The Morean Arts Center focuses on an innovative, community-oriented approach to art and art education. Classes and outreach programs are designed to bring out the artist in all of us, including programs for adults, children and family plus summer camp and early childhood programs, attracting beginners and advanced students alike. The Exhibitions Department brings contemporary art created by local, regional and national artists to the community in virtually all visual mediums, plus a large focus on emerging artists. Open daily to the public with free access to over 25 exhibitions a year. Known in 1917 as the Art Club of St. Petersburg, the concept was simple; create access for artists and those interested in art. Today it is still the same but on a much broader and grander scale, with four facilities operating under the Morean Arts Center, including the world-renowned Chihuly Collection, largest working pottery in the Southeast United States - the Morean Center for Clay and the Morean Glass Studio. The Morean Arts Center depends on the generous support of many individuals and other local, regional, state and national funders who have for over a century embraced the Center's mission. Morean Arts Center memberships offer support to continue the mission of Connecting People with Art.
