The Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center is the first NERR to receive this designation.

NAPLES – Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is the newest member of Coastal America’s prestigious network of Coastal Ecosystem Learning Centers, one of 25 designated learning centers in the country designed to educate and engage the public in protecting coastal ecosystems.

Governor Rick Scott said, “We are proud that Florida is home to the first reserve ever to receive this prestigious designation. Rookery Bay is one of the many reasons Florida will attract more than 100 million visitors next year.”

New Coastal Conversations available   Leave a comment

Within the narrow strip of land and water we call our coast, there is an important story to tell about the complex relationships among the people that live on and visit the coast, the built environment, the U.S. economy, and the sensitive ecosystems that are the coast.  A key part of  our mission is to conserve and manage coastal resources to meet the Nation’s economic, social and environmental needs.  The purpose of this Coastal Conversations is to communicate the crucial importance of a healthy coastal ecosystem to a robust economy, a safe population, and a sustainable quality of life for coastal residents.  The desired outcome is to increase the awareness of the need to better understand, manage, and protect our Nation’s coastal resources.
